Chiques Creek Pedestrian Bridge dedicated after delay

The pedestrian bridge across Chiques Creek near Furnace Road in Marietta was dedicated this morning in a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

 Even though a vehicle accident near the site delayed the opening of the ceremony . . .

 the dedication proceeded nonetheless . . . 

and the ribbon was cut by County Commissioner Scott Martin.

The bridge, part of a $650,000 project, was finished June 25 and will be a key link in the 14.2-mile Northwest River Trail from Columbia Borough to Conoy Township. 

Some other views of the area . . .


  1. Those Tauruses looks pretty sharp. I think Columbia should go back to a black and white scheme.


  2. My Wife and I had a chance to ride our bikes on this trail down to Columbia. We can not wait until the Columbia side is completed !!!! The article says it will not be done until 2016 or 2017 of the great things about this trail is all the trees give great shade to ride during the day and of course our kids LOVED the old train tunnel !

  3. Yes indeed this is a beautiful area that the bridge crosses. I am so glad that more people can enjoy it now. Things are finally coming together in a positive way.
