Laflin Borough Community Park Walk Bridge Temporarily Closed

Creekside Community Park Pedestrian Walk Bridge Update 2/20/24:

Repairs to the footbridge could not take place until further engineering inspections could be done. Pennoni Associates, Inc., the borough engineer, is still working on the footbridge inspection report which should be finalized in early March. However, we should have an engineering repair plan available next week for contractors to bid on the project for repairs.

Separately, Williams Gas Pipeline Company is due to return this spring to complete the ballfield restoration work. The work couldn’t be completed until additional DEP permits were in place. Ballfield underground drainage work, grass sodding and DiamondTex infield dirt will be installed.

A new pavilion will be erected from funding also provided by the Williams Gas Co.

The ballfield dugout roofs will be replaced with new framing and shingles.


Pedestrian Bridge Update 1/26/24:

The bridge to the walking track area will be closed for approximately two weeks to allow for the fabrication of replacement parts. The parts will be welded in place after received.


Pedestrian Bridge Closed:  1/25/24

The Creekside Community Park walking track / ballfield area is temporarily closed due to repairs needed to the footbridge across Gardner Creek.  The bridge will be inspected by an engineer this afternoon with a contractor scheduled for tomorrow.  However, the bridge status opening will depend on the findings of the structural engineer. 

You can contact the Laflin Borough office if you have any questions.
