Crash Shuts Down Lanes of James River Freeway Between I-44 and Highway MM in Republic Area

UPDATE: As of 11:30 a.m. Monday, all eastbound lanes of James River Freeway remain shut down between I-44 and Highway MM. Westbound traffic is open.

Original Story: Getting to work on time has been a big challenge this Monday morning for traffic along James River Freeway in the Republic area.

MoDOT closed down all lanes of traffic, both eastbound and westbound, between I-44 and Highway MM so crews can work an injury crash.

A number of emergency vehicles responded to the scene around 7:00 a.m.

MoDOT expects cleanup could take hours, so motorists should avoid this area until the wreck is cleared.
