Bridge Damaged by CSX Wreck to be Repaired

A footbridge in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, that was damaged in the derailment of a CSX train will be repaired starting this month.

The bridge was damaged last December when seven cars of a CSR train derailed on a bridge over the Potomac River.

The Appalachian Trail Conservancy said a contractor has been hired to do the repairs to the Goodloe E. Byron Memorial Pedestrian Walkway, which is part of the Appalachian Trail.

The work is set to get underway the week of May 11, said the Canal Towns Partnership, which represents communities along the C&O Canal.

The project is expected to be finished by late July.
