High water forces street closuresTell North Platte what you think

Some storm drains were backed up and some streets flooded Saturday morning as the South Platte River water level reached 13.83 feet in North Platte

The river is not expected to rise much more.

Backed up storm sewers have caused road closures at the following locations:

McDonald & William

Cedarberry Rd & Spruce

E. Philip between Bicentennial & Welch

William & Carr

William & Union

McDonald Rd. between Phillip and Sunset

Lincoln County Department of Roads officials report some minor flooding east of North Platte in the Hidden Lakes area. Hidden Lakes Rd. has been closed from Hadley Dr. to South Shore Drive.

As the water levels crest and begin to subside, the flood waters will dissipate and the roads will be reopened.

City and county crews will continue to monitor flooding in these areas.

There have been no reports of homes being affected by the flood waters as of 12:30 p.m. Saturday.
