    thats beyond MoDot. if its not throwing hot mix in pot holes/mowing or pushing snow its more than they can handle.

    Incredible. Most of those shots looked like after the water had receded a lot. I wonder how many 10s of thousands of acres were under water and how much scouring in fields ect has taken place.

    MDC will have bunches of ramps and accesses to repair too.

    Curious as to any damage to Haw Creek and Flat Creek close to my place in Morgan County? I'll find out next week when I plan on going down.

    It's plenty high (980 ft elevation) but getting to it might be a problem but the water goes down pretty quick in a day or so.

    Actually MoDot has been doing a great job fixing roads in a very timely manner. When it comes to rebuilding the bridges that got washed out they will contract that done which im sure will be a slow process.
    But as for all the county and state road crews they have done a great job considering extent of the damage IMO.
  11. Agreed.

    less erosion on bottom land when it is no tilled. Latrell in Lewis county does not what that is.

    Total bridge replacement seems like a FEMA job/fund.
