Plans for replacing the Red Bridge in Park Rapids will go to the city council for input and approval.

The Department of Natural Resources is proposing the Red Bridge that crosses the Fish Hook River be replaced with a 180 foot steel structure in 2013 or 2014. The bridge replacement coincides with improvements planned for Red Bridge Park, including a trailhead facility, parking lot and kiosk. The city has received $137,000 in grant funding for the improvements.
