The Missouri Department of Transportation and state police continue to close roadways and limit travel in response to heavy flooding across the state.

MoDOT will close southbound Interstate 55 at the Meramec River on Wednesday afternoon, with the northbound lanes to close a few hours later.

MoDOT closed Rte. 141 at Romaine Creek overnight Tuesday going into Wednesday, as well as Rte. 21/Tesson Ferry at the Meramec River. Northbound Rte. 21 is closed at Route M. Local traffic should use Old 21.

According to MoDOT officials, these closures mean drivers can expect heavy traffic in the Fenton area. For people who live or work in Fenton, Bowles Avenue will be the only access point. MoDOT is asking drivers to avoid using Bowles Avenue if possible to give more room to the people trying to get home and to work in that area.

Drivers can expect closures to last until at least Friday.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
