An ice jam on the Elkhorn River between Clearwater and Neligh still has water backed up. Although the river is going down throughout Antelope County, it's moving slowly through the ice between Clearwater and the jam.
This jam is located east of the 519 Bridge (south of the Royal Road) and the Singing Bridge. Ice is collecting where the old railroad bridge is broken. This bridge has not been in use for years.
Water remains over Highway 275 in several places with one lane of traffic as cars drive through. Residents are asked not to travel on rural roads until the county can assess them. The Oakdale cut across is currently closed due to structural deficiencies.
