Closed - Pedestrian Bridge - Tonawanda Creek Canal Trailway


The Amherst Highway Department has closed the pedestrian bridge on the Tonawanda Creek Canal Trailway over Ransom Creek. This is located at 2700 Tonawanda Creek Rd. The bridge had to be closed because the structural integrity of the bridge was not sufficient for pedestrian traffic. The Town of Amherst is looking into replacing the bridge with a new structure. Until that time the bridge will remain closed for the safety of the trail users.
