Bridging the gap

Suspended in mid-air, a new McGill Park bridge – one of two installed recently – waits for workers below as they prepare the coordinated process of swinging the bridge into place over a gorge. Both bridges are part of a trail project featuring a 10-foot-wide asphalt path. McGill Park is located along Lithopolis-Winchester Road on the southeast edge of Canal Winchester near Walnut Creek.
A Capital City crane picked up the one-piece structure from a transport vehicle and under the watchful eye of workers manning guide lines, gently lowered the multi-ton bridge into its new home in McGill Park.
Workers prepare to anchor a 66-foot weathering steel bridge into its permanent home in McGill Park. The bridge sits approximately 18 feet above a gorge in the park.
