CARROLL COUNTY, Mo. — Highway 65 in Carroll County between Carrollton and Waverly is is now open, according to the Missouri Department of Transportation.

Flooding closed the roadway last week and area residents have been eagerly awaiting its official reopening.

Damage from flood waters could warrant repairs on the shoulders of the highway.

Water moving across the asphalt surface over the course of multiple days eroded the sides of the roadway, and the damage will need to be assessed and repaired.
