Riverview Marina temporarily closed due to high water; other areas take precautions

NEBRASKA CITY – Rising water levels in the Missouri River led Nebraska Game and Parks Commission staff to close Riverview Marina State Recreation Area in Nebraska City Tuesday.

The closure includes campgrounds and the boat dock.

Precautions are being taken in northeastern Nebraska as river levels rise. No park areas have been closed, but parks staff have moved the boat docks at Pelican Point SRA in Burt County in anticipation of high Missouri River flows.

In addition, signs have been posted at Dead Timber SRA in Dodge County warning visitors of the potential for Elkhorn River flooding in the area.

A flood warning continues for the river until further notice. Minor flooding is occurring and moderate flooding is in the forecast.
