(KAIR)--U.S. Highway 59 remains closed east of Atchison.

That follows the closing of the stretch of highway May 8 due to flooding.

The Amelia Earhart Memorial Bridge, connecting Atchison to Buchanan County, Missouri remains open to local traffic only, with the highway closed one mile east of Atchison.

The Buchanan County Sheriff’s Department is monitoring the area.

KQ2-TV reports deputies are patrolling that location around the clock, and will issue a citation to anyone who drives through barricades.

The Atchison County Emergency Management Office on Saturday reported that flood water remained across the highway in three locations.

It’s not known how long the major travel route will remain closed.
