A riverfront park that joins Breckenridge and Wahpeton is coming closer to fruition. City officials gathered in April and offered final approval of the plan by Lightowler Johnson Associates and the Leonard Atelier Group, both in Fargo.
Aimed at highlighting the park areas and boosting recreation, the plan includes more pedestrian trails, a kayaking loop and turf set aside for Frisbee golf.
A main concern is the Dakota Avenue bridge, the main connection point between the two states. Already narrow for its four lands or traffic, engineers recommend removing or replacing it or adding a pedestrian bridge beside the current structure.
