The City of Council Bluffs, in coordination with Southwest Iowa Nonprofit for Collective Impact (SINC) is proposing improvements in River’s Edge North are to include a treetop walk (an elevated walkway approximately 2,520 feet long, 12 feet wide, and 18 feet above ground) with a connection to the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge, an observation tower with restrooms, utility connections, and an emergency access roadway (16-foot-wide paved roadway) with drainage ditches on each side of the road for its entire length. The walkway would be lit from an electrical connection off the pedestrian bridge. The connection would extend to the observation tower and restrooms for lighting of those features. Sanitary sewer and potable water lines would be extended from existing utilities near the west end of Avenue D, across the L627 Levee to the observation tower. A 12-foot-wide gravel emergency access road in River’s Edge North would provide access to the tower complex.
