MOORHEAD, Minn.–In preparation for rising river levels, the City of Moorhead will be raising the Gooseberry to Lindenwood Park bridge and the Memorial to Oak Grove Park bridge on Wednesday.

Private properties on the riverfront may also be affected. The City encourages anyone worried about flooding on private property to use their mapping tool to view potential impact areas.
