The CONSOL Energy Bridge in The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve will be a 700 foot long span that rises 200 feet over a giant ravine.
The bridge is designed for foot traffic, but when we're talking about The Summit, there's always something more. In this case, the design of the bridge will incorporate 3 separate walkways; one main span, and two side-walkways that will take Scouts both above and below the main passage.
Scouts will use the bridge to move from the main activity area in The Summit to the eastern side of the Reserve. There will also be trails along the creek bed beneath the bridge, more than 9 stories below. When complete, the bridge and surrounding area will be one of the highlights and main focus points of the experience of Scouts that come to The Summit.
The Bridge is made possible by a $15 million donation by CONSOL Energy. Planning and construction for the bridge is happening simultaneously with other exciting developments at The Summit, in preparation for the 2013 National Scout Jamboree.
