FARGO — The Fargo Park District is raising the Lindenwood Park pedestrian lift bridge and removing the Forest River Park kayak launch due to expected minor flooding on the Red River Friday, July 10.

The Red River is forecast to reach minor flood stage of 18 feet Friday afternoon and peak at 18 feet, 6 inches on Saturday. The river is expected to remain in minor flood stage until Monday.

The Lindenwood Bridge connects Lindenwood Park in Fargo with Gooseberry Park in Moorhead. Those who use the bridge should plan an alternate route. The bridge will remain out of service until water levels subside.
