LINCOLN, Neb. – The portion of Fremont Lakes State Recreation Area (SRA) south of Military Avenue in Fremont is temporarily closed due to high flows of the Platte River and the potential for rapid changes in the area’s lake levels.
Recent flooding caused by ice jams on the Platte has resulted in some SRA lake levels to rise well above surrounding lakes. That created the potential for overtopping and erosion of low areas. Staff is monitoring the status of the area.
