DNREC’s Division of Parks & Recreation announced that the “Swinging Bridge,” a pedestrian foot bridge in Brandywine Park in Wilmington, will be closed on weekdays beginning Monday, February 12, 2018. The bridge will be open for weekend use.
The Swinging Bridge straddles the Brandywine River between North and South Park Drives. The closure is necessary for the repair of the bridge decking. Repairs are expected to take up to one month to complete.
An alternate river crossing for pedestrians is on the Van Buren Street Bridge to the south.
