ST. LOUIS - A new report from The National Weather Service says that Mississippi River should remain deep enough for barge traffic for at least the next four weeks.

According to the release, the river should stay at least ten feet deep until February 20th.

Due to drought conditions, crews have been dredging and blasting rock from the river channel in an effort to keep barge traffic moving.
