Division of Fish & Wildlife’s Milton pedestrian fishing bridge and fishing pier deck replacement proceeding
Construction closures to continue while repairs are made
MILTON (May 29, 2015) – Access to the pedestrian fishing bridge and the fishing pier on the Broadkill River in Milton will be closed to complete the replacement of decking surfaces on each facility, DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife announced today. The fishing pier is expected to reopen by Wednesday, June 3 and the pedestrian fishing bridge is expected to reopen by Friday, June 12.
The closures will allow the contractor to remove and replace the existing wooden deck and handrails. The fishing bridge and fishing pier were originally installed in 1992 and have become popular fishing sites with local residents and visitors to the Town of Milton.
The pedestrian fishing bridge crosses the Broadkill River at the Milton Memorial Park and Fish & Wildlife boating access area. The fishing pier is located on the Broadkill River along the downstream side of the Wagamons Pond spillway.
