New Ligonier Borough pedestrian bridge dedication set for Saturday
The Ligonier Township Recreation Board will conduct a ribbon-cutting ceremony 9:30 a.m. Saturday at the new pedestrian and hiking bridge that crosses Mill Creek behind Weller Field.
The event will celebrate a cooperative effort between Ligonier Township, Ligonier Borough and the Loyalhanna Watershed Association to bring the Ligonier Valley Trail and the Mill Creek bridge to reality.
The event will be followed by a walk on the rail bed to Peoples Road and back to the bridge.
The Friends of the Ligonier Valley Trail and Recreation Board invite anyone interested in becoming a trail volunteer or ambassador to meet after the walk for a short organizational meeting near the bridge ramp.
The bridge can be accessed from Boquet Street in the Borough.
