Babcock State Park opens for season, bridge construction is complete

DANESE - Construction is complete on a new bridge in Babcock State Park in Fayette County.

Park Superintendent Clinton Cochran said the Division of Highways began rebuilding the bridge last winter and completed construction last Thursday, just in time for the park's seasonal opening the following day.

The bridge is located near the Glade Creek Grist Mill. It allows for both foot and vehicle traffic.

Cochran said he is glad the bridge is finally open, saying the bridge "will be there for many, many years."

He also thanks anglers for their patience, since they had to wait until construction was done for trout stocking.
