Water levels are still high, as are debris levels.

Water levels are still high, as are debris levels.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol on Friday opened the section of the Osage River from Lock and Dam #1 (the 12-mile mark) to the Route B Bridge (the 34-mile mark) at St. Thomas, Mo.

The water patrol division determined that the water levels had dropped sufficiently to reopen the 22-mile section of the waterway. While the area is open, boaters were warned to avoid creating wakes where water levels are still high. The patrol also warned boaters to keep an eye out for debris in the water.

The Osage River from the Missouri River to Lock and Dam #1 remains closed to recreational boating until further notice, said the state highway patrol.
