Construction of the final phases of Upper Landing Park will be underway this summer and will continue into the Fall. When complete, a new public plaza and River Landing will exist between Upper Landing Park and the Upper Landing Housing Development. This project will complete a public connection to the Mississippi River and the Samuel H. Morgan Regional Trail.
During construction, the Samuel H. Morgan Regional Trail will be closed to allow construction of the Plaza, the Landing and farther upstream completion of the Xcel Highbridge power plant. An additional construction project in this area will begin when the renovation of the historic Headhouse grain elevator begins later this summer, restoring and converting the structure into an interpretive center and destination restaurant.
