June 20, 2013 - 12:29 PM
City of Vernon Parks Staff Paul Chirkoff (middle) and Dave Haverty (right) are working today to position a new steel pedestrian bridge over Vernon Creek in Polson Park.
The old wood structure bridge was removed last fall due to its failing condition.
The new steel bridge was built by the City’s steel fabricator Ray Sengotta and provides the only pedestrian access to the Polson Park Wishing well.
James Rice, City of Vernon Manager of Public Works said, “It’s anticipated that the new bridge will quickly become a favourite location for family and event photos.”
The bridge is expected to be operational near the end of today. The third individual (far left) in the photo is a contract crane operator.
