ST. CLAIR, Mo. (KMOX) — The Missouri State Highway Patrol is urging drivers to avoid Westbound 44 near St. Clair for the next several hours.

Emergency crews are dealing with an overturned tractor trailer west of St. Clair near the rest area. All lanes are shut down and will be for some time.

State troopers are trying to divert traffic onto the outer road, but say that has become extremely congested as well. That’s why they’re asking motorist to avoid the area all together.
