DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - The iconic "swinging bridge" at Jay Cooke State Park will be open for public use on Friday.  The bridge was destroyed in the June 2012 flood and has been rebuilt and improved.  Besides being strengthened, visible improvements include cedar log handrails on the access ramps that recreates some of the bridges original appeal, recreated stone work on the support pillars that match work done by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1934.  The bridge will also have improved access and walkways and an ADA compliant turn-around on the south side for wheelchairs.
