The Turkey River runs through Elkader, beneath the Keystone Arch Bridge, on Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013. The river has flooded several times in recent decades, including a high water level more than 15 feet over flood stage in 2008. The bridge is the longest double-arch stone bridge west of the Mississippi River. (Liz Martin/The Gazette)
