Levee rocks come tumbling down

Wednesday, May 22, 2002

Motorists cruised through the intersection of Highway 25 and Route A at Dutchtown Wednesday with smiles on their faces. It was the first time they were able to travel the road since the Army Corps of Engineers closed the intersection and Highway 74 on May 15 to build a 2,000-foot temporary levee. But some area businesses are looking to raise money so a temporary levee will never be needed for Dutchtown again. For more on this story, read Thursday's Southeast Missourian.
