Bridge Work Update: Now, Over The Trail
October 15th, 2012
Work on the Jeremiah Morrow I71 bridge has reached the point that sometime in the last two weeks of October and continuing until the snow flies, crews overhead will be working directly above the trail. Workers will install tarps to catch the small debris, but when the heavy equipment arrives overhead, flagmen will be positioned on the trail to shutdown access underneath the bridge.
Weekend closures will be avoided and if necessary will be of short duration. However, weekday closures will be up to one hour in length and their frequency unknown at this time.
The Jeremiah Morrow I71 bridge is located between mile markers 22.5 and 23.0 (between Wilmington Road at Mather's Mill and St Rte 350 at Ft. Ancient). Unfortunately there aren't any easy detours around this section of the trail.
If more information becomes available, we'll make it available to you.
