ELKHART — A scheduled maintenance for an Elkhart riverboat had traffic backed up for a while Wednesday morning, April 10.

The Elkhart police and emergency departments helped block traffic near Goshen Avenue and Jackson Boulevard for periods of five to 10 minutes between 8 and 9 a.m. while a crane and tow trucks pulled into the narrow Bowers Court to perform a maintenance check on the Elkhart River Queen.

The check-up would take place Wednesday just where the 60-year-old boat is kept, said a police officer at the scene.
