Officials at the Nemaha Natural Resources District announced recently that a section of the 22-mile Steamboat Trace that parallels the Missouri River is again suffering from flood damage.
The section in question is about a three-mile stretch north of Brownville in Nemaha County between the bridges that cross Honey Creek and Weldon Creek. NRD crews were on site attempting to address the damage which has left some ditches and eroded areas in the crushed rock surface. Until more permanent, corrective action can be taken, visitors are urged to proceed with caution through that area and heed any directions and precautions listed on posted signs. It is recommended that those on bicycles walk their way through the rough spots.
Flood waters have receded for now, but more rains could bring additional problems. For more information about the status of the Steamboat Trace, contact the Nemaha NRD at 402-335-3325 or check our website at www.nemahanrd.org.
