ATCHISON, Kan. (AP) -- The start of demolition work on a northeast Kansas bridge has been rescheduled because of high water levels along the Missouri River.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/17Ov4Y1 ) divers can't safely complete needed work for the first blast of the U.S. 59 Amelia Earhart Memorial Bridge because the Missouri River has risen from recent heavy rain and snow in northern states.

The first blast of the bridge's demolition had been scheduled for Monday. But the Kansas Department of Transportation says that's now rescheduled for Wednesday. The department says dates for the second and third blasts are under discussion.

The bridge spans the Missouri River between Atchison and Winthrop, Mo.
