(Fargo, ND) -- The winding road that is the proposed Downtown Fargo Pedestrian Bridge has apparently come to a dead end.

Fargo officials must now return a federal grant for the project that was voted down by the Fargo City Commission.

The city secured the two-point-four-million-dollar grant to use for the pedestrian bridge construction in Downtown Fargo, which would have stretched from City Hall to the riverfront of the Red River. City commissioners voted Monday to stop that project.

Commissioners say they want a plan for a plaza in that area before a bridge is built.

There has been no word on how long the plaza would take, or any plans on what that may look like just yet.
