Over the weekend the ice jam on the Gallatin River opened up allowing water to remain in the river and the flooding to recede, however Axtell-Gateway Road is still closed. Gallatin County Emergency Management reported Monday.

They further reminded residents in the area to be cognizant of how quickly conditions on the river can change during the winter and closely monitor the conditions. While the channel has opened up, there remains residual ice in many places that could cause future flooding.
