The Conservancy began raising funds to help CVNP replace pedestrian bridges within the park in 2020. Through the support of individual donors and the Trails Forever Fund, we raised over $60,000 to assist the park in replacing Old Carriage Trail, Plateau Trail, and Stanford Trail footbridges. Wooden bridges were replaced with fiberglass truss bridges and new wood decking. These new bridges ensure safer and more secure footing across a number of creeks that intersect the trails. Existing wooden bridges were replaced with fiberglass truss bridges with wood decking.

The Salt Run Trail footbridge is our remaining projects for 2023. The bridge being replaced on Salt Run Trail is currently in decline and past its life cycle. Temporary repairs have already been conducted to this bridge for stabilization, but a permanent replacement is needed for a total cost of $50,000.
