Around 6:35 this morning, KMZU received a call from authorities stating there is a downed tree on UU highway at Big Creek Bridge that is blocking both lanes. MoDOT crews are aware of the situation and have dispatched crews to clean up the debris. Motorists need to find an alternate route.

{UPDATE}

Just before 8:00 a.m. MoDOT reported the downed tree has been removed and Highway UU once again is open.
