Access to Nebraska’s Elkhorn River Restricted

papio-missouri-natural-resoELKHORN, Neb. (AP) — Access to the Elkhorn River in eastern Nebraska will continue to be restricted through the July 4th weekend cause of dangerous high water.

The Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District has closed all the Elkhorn River access points in Douglas County.

General manager John Winkler says boating on the river remains dangerous.

But if the river returns to normal levels, the access points could be reopened next week.
