It's been months since the picturesque footbridges at Binney Park in Old Greenwich were removed by the town for safety reasons.
Last week, the new wooden footbridges were delivered. However, visitors will have to wait a couple more weeks before they'll be able to use the replacements.
According to Greenwich Parks and Recreation Director Joseph Siciliano, the foot bridges, installed on new foundations, still need ramps which will be built by contractors within the next two weeks. Yellow tape hangs across the ends of the bridges to prevent access.
The bridges—where countless wedding and prom photos have been taken over the years—cost the town about $69,000 and the foundation and ramp work, about $14,000, according to Siciliano.
The 20-plus acre park on Sound Beach Avenue and Arch Street was built on land donated by Edwin Binney was completed and dedicated in 1933, according to the Greenwich Historical Society.
