Jones Bridge Comes To South Huron Trail

South Huron | by Fadi Didi  

$50 thousand more in fundraising needed to complete pedestrian bridge.

A long-awaited pedestrian bridge has been placed along the South Huron Trail.

The Jones Bridge was recently lifted and placed downstream of the Morrison Dam.

Over $250 thousand in fundraising was needed to purchase and move the bridge into place.

Another $50 thousand is needed to complete the bridge project, and open it to the public.

Currently, South Huron Trail users have to walk beside traffic along Morrison Line to travel from one section of the trail to the other.

The complete steel bridge is 52 metres in length and has anti-slip deck planks, self-weathering steel that creates a protective rust coating through natural processes, and galvanized steel railings on the bridge’s insides.
