October 2013 DNR Update: Turkey Run Suspension Bridge Is Repaired And Open For Use

An April flood that caused significant structural damage to the suspension bridge at Turkey Run State Park resulted in closure of the bridge for public use. However, as of October 4, 2013 the bridge has been repaired and is now open for use.

The bridge will be closed for a few days in late November or December so additional work can be completed on an adjacent staircase.
