Mississippi River Greenway Phase One â€“ Planning Design Studio
This 1.6-mile MRG Phase 1 greenway offers spectacular views of the Mississippi River, winding through tree-tops of a bottomland forest as it respectfully enters JB Park, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. Greenway elements include the 12â€™-wide trail; trailhead plazas; pedestrian bridges; pedestrian overlooks (with benches and interpretive signing); lighting; permeable parking lot; signing; landscape plantings and native restoration; raingarden; and related infrastructure improvements. The trail and all facilities are ADA accessible and meet AASHTO design guidelines. The design and materials incorporated into the project relate and compliment the historic character of the historic site.
