Trail Bridges Closed

first_imgFour bridges on an abandoned railway corridor in Kings County have been temporarily closed for safety reasons. The affected bridges are located at Spidle Brook, Sharpe Brook, Graves Brook and McGee Brook. Barricades will be put in place as soon as possible and signs placed to warn of the closures. The bridges will remain closed until all necessary repairs can be completed. Two groups — Cornwallis River Pathways Society and Kings County Trails Society — are working with the departments of Natural Resources and Health Promotion and Protection to upgrade different sections of the Kings County railway corridor for recreational trails. Engineers have examined these structures and have determined that all four bridges should be closed immediately to all users until necessary repairs and replacements can be made. -30-last_img read more
