Riverwalk Red Multi-Use Trail Bridge over Des Moines River
The Principal Riverwalk Red Multi-Use Trail Bridge over the Des Moines River, a former railroad bridge, is a hydraulic constriction and a controlling element of the regulatory flood profile. This project includes raising the bridge 4.5 feet to gain additional hydraulic capacity, which will result in a drop in the regulatory flood profile, allowing water to flow more easily and quickly downstream, thus reducing the risk of flooding in downtown Des Moines and upstream.
