Waterfront Park foot bridge reopens

The foot bridge connecting Waterfront Park to Harborview Drive is now open, city officials announced Wednesday.

Repairs on the bridge began late December after safety concerns forced its closure several months earlier.

Improvements to the walk way include installation of a new section of pile jacketed in concrete to reinforce the structural integrity of the bridge, as well as a pile splice that removed deficient materials.

The city’s public works departments have scheduled further bridge maintenance this year.

Future closures, however, will be avoided as much as possible, officials said.
