Cellpic Sunday – 14 June 2020

Fargo, North Dakota.

Spring flooding has been an issue for many years along the Red River of the North in Fargo. At Lindenwood Park in south Fargo, a pedestrian bridge has linked Lindenwood with Gooseberry Park in Moorhead Minnesota since 1978. During the summer, that bridge joined the two communities but each year during flood season, the City of Fargo would bring large cranes to the site to lift the bridge out of the water to keep the floodwaters from washing the bridge downriver. In 2013, construction was completed on a new lift bridge that features concrete abutments and a lift system that brings the bridge above the 500-year flood level.

  1. For some reason, maybe it’s because I’m more than a little off, bridges that link two jurisdictions have always fascinated me. Even though as the child of Holocaust survivors I wouldn’t actually cross it, when we visited Luxembourg I was spellbound by the thought that a little bridge across the Moselle River from Echternach ended in Germany and that I could see Germany from across the river. By the way, when air travel “resumes” I highly recommend Luxembourg as a destination. I wish I could paste some photos from there into this comment.

    • Luxembourg is on my bucket list. We had planned Europe for this year and next, Hopefully we can still make our first trip next year. BTW, my family emigrated from Luxembourg in the late 1800s.

      • With your family roots I really recommend a trip to Luxembourg.

        My wonderful wife and I view Luxembourg as a place to escape if the US gets even crazier than it is now.
