DURANT, Okla. (AP) - Transportation officials have reopened part of a highway connecting Oklahoma and Texas that was closed because of high water along the Red River.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation on Sunday reopened southbound and one northbound lane at the Red River Bridge along U.S. Highway 69 in Bryan County. The bridge connects the states near Lake Texoma and was completely closed for more than an hour earlier in the day.

The National Weather Service reports that the Red River at Lake Texoma was near flood stage on Sunday. The agency reports that storms have dropped between 10 and 15 inches of rain over the surrounding area during the past 30 days.
