FULTON COUNTY - Flooding is still causing headaches along roadways and bridges.

Because of the overflow, a detour is set up for Route 9 traffic at the spoon river. Drivers will use route 95 for the detour via Route 41 to the west and Route 97 to the east. I-DOT representatives say they don't know when that part of route nine will reopen.

Even if water levels recede, the condition of the road could continue to be a problem.
