Chippewa Falls (WQOW)– Irvine Park in Chippewa Falls is getting new walking bridges.
Director of Parks Recreation and Forestry Dick Hebert said a flood in 2016 damaged three walking bridges located in the ski trail and they need to be replaced.
Hebert said two of the three bridges have been removed and it has become an inconvenience to people who want to stay in the woods, because now they have to leave the trail and walk on the asphalt roads.
“Building bridges in the woods is challenging, it’s challenging to do that,” Hebert said. “So, we’ve come up with a plan and we’re on schedule to replace the three bridges this fall before the snow flies so that people can use the bridges.”
Hebert said they hope to be finished with the project by Thanksgiving.
He did not have a cost estimate immediately available.
