Roadway now open at westbound US 24 and Topeka Blvd.


Recent rains didn’t do any favors for a trucker at the Shoofly Detour along U.S. 24 early this morning.

At about 7 a.m., a semi rig became stuck on the westbound lane of the detour.

The left side wheels of the rig became mired in the mud as the driver tried to maneuver through the detour.

A tow truck arrived on the scene to pull the truck out.

The Shoofly reopened to traffic at 10 a.m.

Later in the morning, another vehicle became stuck in a ditch at Rochester and Menninger Roads.
