JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMOX) – The Missouri National Guard says it’s planning to deploy portable bridges in southeast Missouri flood zones.

44 members of the 1438th Engineer Company in Jefferson City will use the bridges to create access for civilian and military traffic.  The danger for the soldiers is that flood waters could be moving faster over covered roads than through a normal river crossing.
