EMPORIA, Kan. (KSNT) – K-99 remains closed due to flood waters entirely across the highway south of Emporia, the Kansas Department of Transportation.

The closure over the Cottonwood River was prompted by large amounts of rain this week.

Northbound and southbound  K-99 traffic will detour via local county roads to the Kansas Turnpike.  KDOT says this will be a toll-free access for this detour only to access K-99 on either side of the area that’s closed.

KDOT is reminding travelers do not attempt to drive through flooded or high water on roadways.
