Bridge Over Manatawny Creek to Close for Repairs in December

The Schuylkill River Trail pedestrian bridge over the Manatawny Creek in Pottstown’s Riverfront Park will close for repairs on Dec. 4. It is expected to remained closed for two to four weeks. Trail users can access the trail at Pottstown’s Riverfront Park Trail Head throughout that time, but they will not be able to cross the bridge to continue along the trail westward. People wishing to travel along the trail from Pottstown toward Berks County should access the trail at the Keystone Blvd Trail Head, located just west of the bridge.
