Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson was in attendance. He told visitors that Arkansas would build up Delta Regional Park in an effort to make it a place more people would want to visit. 

Hutchinson hopes Delta Regional Park in West Memphis will have all sort of amenities that will encourage more people to visit Arkansas and to use Big River Crossing.

Big River Crossing is the longest public pedestrian bridge across the Mississippi River. It measures nearly a mile in length.
