Danville Riverwalk Trail bridge expected to reopen by the weekend

DANVILLE (WSLS 10) - The Danville Parks and Rec Department expects to have the wooden trestle bridge along the Riverwalk Trail reopened by the weekend.

The bridge was closed Monday afternoon after a discarded cigarette but caught the bridge on fire.

Some planks near the middle of the bridge had to be removed and a section of the railing was also damaged.

Repair work is expected to begin Thursday.

As of Tuesday, the parks and rec department did not have an estimate on the cost of the work.
