Manayunk Bridge set to open to walkers and bike riders with ceremony Oct. 30

With its reopening, the century-old Manayunk will link the Cynwyd Heritage Trail in Lower Merion with downtown Manayunk.
Opportunities to watch a dream come true don’t come around very often.
One of them will occur next Friday, Oct. 30, when Lower Merion, Montgomery County and Philadelphia officials – and a crowd of area trail walkers and bicycle riders gather over the Schuylkill River to cut a ribbon and reopen the century-old Manayunk Bridge.
What seemed the most remote of possibilities several years ago will become reality because some people looked at a defunct rail line and saw a link between communities and a connection to a network that reaches far beyond the river’s banks.
The ceremony will take place at 11 a.m. Immediately after the ribbon is cut, the bridge will open for public use. It will extend the four-year-old Cynwyd Heritage Trail in Lower Merion to downtown Manayunk and beyond that to the Schuylkill River Trail.
For those who walk or ride across, it will offer views of the Schuylkill River that few have seen in 30 years.
The first glimmer of the $5.7-million project was lit when a group in Lower Merion Township saw the possibility of creating a community trail on two miles of unused rail bed running from the Cynwyd Station in Bala Cynwyd to the Manayunk Bridge.
