Bridge Installed Over Wissahickon
Thu, Jan 28th, 2016
Just before the blizzard hit last week, crews were able to install a pedestrian bridge spanning the Wissahickon Creek on a future trail connection between Whitpain and Lower Gwynedd. The trail is located off of Township Line Road (north) in Whitpain Township.
The steel bridge was built in Alabama and delivered in one piece all the way to Pennsylvania. Specially trained crews set the bridge into place in a few hours.
"Although the bridge installation marks a major milestone in the construction of this trail, more work is needed before the trail opens to the public," said Whitpain's Parks and Recreation Director Kurt Baker. "When we formally open the trail later this year, it will mark significant progress in our trail system as we will link to Lower Gwynedd's Penllyn Woods Park and the Green Ribbon Trail."
