OMAHA — High water on the Platte and Elkhorn rivers has forced officials to close access sites in Douglas County.
The Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District says the high water creates dangerous boating conditions on the rivers. The access sites will be closed until at least Monday. It will be contingent on the rivers returning to near-normal conditions.
The closed river access sites include Platte River Landing near Nebraska 64 and Elkhorn River sites at Elkhorn Crossing near 252nd Street and Bennington Road.
