Turkey Run Suspension Bridge Reopens Friday

The suspension bridge at Turkey Run State Park that was damaged by a flood in April has been repaired and will reopen Friday.

During the flood, Sugar Creek rose to within a foot of the bridge, causing an uprooted tree to become lodged in the structure.

The resulting damage led to a temporary closure of the bridge to replace stringer beams, suspension cable and hanger rods, and to fix the bridge's concrete support towers.

The cost to repair the bridge was about 218-thousand dollars.

The bridge was built in 1918.
