Rockland Pedestrian Bridge Opens In Time For 9/11 Ceremony

A pedestrian bridge at a park in Rockland County has reopened in time for the 9/11 memorial ceremony.

The pedestrian bridge at Haverstraw Bay County Park reopened Friday, in time for the Sunday’s memorial ceremony. Rockland County Executive Ed Day and other officials marked the opening of the bridge, which was destroyed nearly four years ago during Superstorm Sandy. Day says it cost nearly $700,000 to rebuild the bridge and most of the cost was covered by funds from FEMA and the county's insurance policy. He says there was no cost to county taxpayers. Rockland’s memorial ceremony begins at the park 8:30 Sunday morning.
