New Coonskin Park Bridge Opens
A new bridge has been dedicated at Coonskin Park in Charleston.
Officials held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the bridge Wednesday.
The bridge is the new public entrance into the Kanawha County-owned park. It connects the park to U.S. Route 119 in Mink Shoals. Ground was broken on the $6.2 million project last year. The bridge provides a new entryway, connecting the park to U.S. Route 119 in Mink Shoals.
Another road leading past an Air National Guard base to the park has closed to through traffic. That road closure was a stipulation in a federal improvement plan to make the base more secure and keep it, too, from being closed.
