Red Jacket Trestle Bridge Open Again 12 Nov 11

The repairs are nearly complete on the historic Red Jacket Trestle, and the trail bridge is now open to the public. The trestle was severely damaged by the floods the local area suffered last fall. The bridge span was lifted back into place last Thursday, and work to secure the span and get the trail river crossing up to safety standards was finished in the last few days. Some minor protection and surface repairs still need to be completed on the project this coming spring. Access to the adjoining park will continue to be limited until the construction is completed.
