The Heritage Walkway Bridge in Durham is Officially Re-opened

DURHAM – The Heritage Walkway Bridge in has been re-opened in Durham.

An official re-opening ceremony was held on April 25th; with West Grey Council members, township staff and members of the public in attendance.

The iconic pedestrian crossing goes over the Saugeen River and into the downtown area.

Mayor Kevin Eccles says it was restored using timber bridge construction by Timber Restoration Services of Moncton New Brunswick.

“The timber bridge construction model is a fitting solution to restoring this landmark in our community. It’s been an interesting journey from building the bridge in New Brunswick to the piece-by-piece reassembly here in Durham.”

The project came with a $560,000 price tag.
