Detour (flooding) off of US-61 onto county M
US-61 is closed south of Ste. Genevieve due to flooding. Instead of using state 34 as the obvious proper detour to I-55, the town puts you on very small county M. County M has a 30-MPH section (even though rural), and that’s where they unsuspecting drivers not familiar with the road. The 30-MPH limit allows for very trumped-up citations for even relatively low speeds when anticipating this road to be 55 MPH.
