When will this project begin?

There are multiple phases to this project. The planning phase has been completed and the next step is to create a path for the equipment to access the bridge location. The path has been specifically routed to minimize the impact on the forested look of the park and routed away from several larger trees. Many of the trees that will be removed are invasive species such as eastern red cedar. This phase is expected to start in early April.

The following phase is the construction, where the existing footbridge will be removed and replaced. The anticipated construction start date is September, with completion estimated for January.
