Improvements could be made to a highway in Clark County that is prone to flooding, as long as voters support a new sales tax next month.
The stretch of Highway 61 between Alexandria, Mo. and the Iowa state line runs near the intersection of the Des Moines and Mississippi Rivers.
It is shut down at the moment because flood water has overtaken the road. MoDOT must inspect the road once the water has receded before it can be re-opened.
