The heavily used footbridge that is utilized daily will be replaced with a low-maintenance steel bridge and concrete abutments, making it withstand the elements and traffic longer.

The current wood structure has wear, decay, damage and is covered in vandalism.
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.
No, the park will not be closed to the public. Portions of the path will be closed for pedestrian safety. To best communicate construction is underway, sidewalk closed signs at either end of the bridge will be erected and notification signs at the trailheads indicating the bridge is closed will be installed.
