Old fuel dock to become overlook

Email

A fueling dock on the Mississippi River in Jaycee Park, unused for many years, will soon become an overlook and fishing pier.

The dock, which sits along the walking path between the boat launch and the lock and dam, was built in 1942.

"It was literally a gas station on the river," Parks and Recreation Director Barry Bernstein said. "In 1942, the river was a major highway."
