Repair work on the Saltwater Park pedestrian bridge is nearing completion. The major work is now finished and opening is expected by mid-May.

However, while the bridge may appear safe to cross, there is still work that must be completed prior to opening for use. Any damage caused to ongoing work by public access could impact the schedule and delay the bridge opening.

Work to complete the project and open the bridge to the public includes:
  • Concrete and asphalt placement at the bridge approaches.
  • Grout and seal the bridge pick points and joints
  • Final clean up and site restoration

The repairs and upgrades are necessary to maintain a safe bridge and allow continued access for emergency and maintenance vehicles. Completion of these repairs will extend the life of the bridge 20 or more years at a fraction of what it would cost to replace the bridge.

Why is the public unable to access the beach through the Innis Arden trail? Aren't my tax dollars used to pave Innis Arden roads?
