Usually ice jams are a problem this time of year on the Platte River.

Warmer temperatures this year have removed that flooding threat but another looms.

At the Platte River bridge on Highway 6, we noticed that debris was starting to clog up along railroad tracks paralleling the traffic bridge.

Crews regularly have to come in and remove large trees and limbs that have dammed up water flows.

Although there are some clogs starting to form, water is flowing as it should and there is no imminent danger of flooding.

Reminders of past season of log jams along the bridge are piled nearby.

We'll continue to monitor the situation along the river for any problems.
