A 256-mile portion of the lower Missouri River reopened to all boat traffic Thursday for the first time since June.

The Coast Guard and the Kansas City District of the Army Corps of Engineers opened the river from mile marker 0.0 to mile marker 256.0, which encompasses the area from St. Louis to Brunswick, Mo., according to media reports.

The river remains closed from mile marker 256 to mile marker 811 near Gavins Point Dam in Yankton, S.D. Also closed is the Big Sioux River from the confluence with the Missouri to the Military Road Bridge in north Sioux City, S.D.

The Coast Guard advises users of the river to monitor VHF-FM channels 16 and 22 for any changes to the closing.
