The 60-foot-long prefabricated bridge, made of self-weathering steel with composite decking, was built by Contech Engineered Solutions in Greencastle. R.S. Mowery and Sons of Mechanicsburg is the general contractor.
The bridge is expected to open in mid-May after new pathways and lighting are completed, will make it more convenient for pedestrians to access all parts of the Wilson campus.
The old bridge, which was made of wood, failed after a storm and has been closed since 2008.
