Flood clean up begins in LaGrange

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Crews in La Grange, Missouri are in the process of cleaning up all the mud and debris left behind by the river.

Just over a week ago, Route B was closed due to flooding, but now traffic is traveling back through despite the large amount of mud left behind.

Ameren crews spent Wednesday morning working on resetting a pole that was knocked over from the grain bin collapse. That’s been on hold since the flooding started.

Railroad crews are also clearing mud and debris off railroad tracks.

City officials said they’re working on cleaning off sidewalks and are hoping to get things back to normal as soon as possible.

“The beauty part of it is we’re all making it, the downfall is it’s still gonna take a little bit of time to get back to normal and get this stuff cleaned up,” LaGrange City Administrator John Roach.

Businesses like the Mark Twain Casino are also working to clean off all the mud and silt from their parking lots, though some of those are still flooded.
