Riverside bridge closed temporarily

The Logansport Parks & Recreation Department has announced that contractors will be working on the bridge at Riverside Park. As the weather warms up, masonry work on the pillars will be done. In addition, the sidewalk railings will be installed.

During this final phase of construction, the bridge will be closed to the public. The contractor requests that the public stay off the bridge structure.

Visitors to Riverside Park are asked to keep away from the construction equipment for the duration.

Questions can be directed to the Parks Administrator, Janet Fawley, at 574-753-6969 or by email at
