Water will rise for Riverfest, despite Lincoln Street Bridge construction

Paddleboats, Jet Skis, canoes and kayaks. All will have plenty of water for their events at next month’s Wichita River Festival. The new dam for the reconstructed Lincoln Street Bridge will be ready in plenty of time to raise the Arkansas River’s level before the festival starts June 1, city interim engineer Gary Janzen said Thursday.
