Walnut Ridge Park: Trail Bridge Update

Tuesday, April 23, 2024

The bridge at Walnut Ridge Park, which runs over the gully near Shimer Court, is beyond its usable life. The expense to rebuild the bridge to current building codes and in compliance with stormwater requirements is cost prohibitive. Therefore, the dirt trail will be realigned to avoid any need for a bridge further upstream, and the bridge will be removed later this year.
