The flooded Fox River continued to recede Sunday as authorities opened up the County Highway F bridge near the Fox River Park entrance.

The closure signs at County Highway F were removed around 3 p.m. Sunday, according to Kenosha County authorities. The bridge over County Highway F at the Fox River and the area just west of the bridge are now passable.

Weather conditions are expected to be dry on Monday with the next system moving in to the state Tuesday afternoon, which could be one of several storms that might move across the area later in the week bringing heavy rain, according to the National Weather Service. 

The Fox River at Burlington was at minor flood stage of 11.7 feet Sunday afternoon and is expected to drop below flood stage by Tuesday.
