Flood Damages Park Bridge

Share this post

Flood damage has closed a nearly century-old suspension bridge at a popular Indiana State Park. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources say an April flood resulted in significant structural damage to the suspension bridge at Turkey Run State Park. The bridge was built in 1918, two years after Turkey Run became a state park. The Indiana DNR says the bridge crosses Sugar Creek and connects the developed area of the park with the park's northern section and its popular hiking trails, through the sandstone canyons and forested area of Rocky Hollow Falls Canyon Nature Preserve. DNR staff are reviewing options on what to do. The 202-foot-long bridge is 4 feet wide and supported by steel cables nearly 2 inches in diameter. A 50-ton concrete tower on the south side of the bridge supports the cables.
