Missouri Highway 79 re-opened to traffic at approximately 4 p.m. today (Thursday) near Continental Cement. The road has been closed since early this morning due to a railroad car incident. Burlington Northern-Santa Fe Railroad personnel could still be working close to the road in the area, so please obey all road signs and personnel near the work zone area. Traffic had been re-routed since this morning's derailment.
