A popular trail bridge in Capilano River Regional Park in North Vancouver has been repaired and reopened to the public after it was significantly damaged during a wild windstorm earlier this year.
Cable Pool Bridge, on the Second Canyon Viewpoint Trail, was damaged from a falling tree during a winter storm on Jan. 12, which brought winds of up to 91 km/h to parts of the Lower Mainland and left tens of thousands without power.
A Metro Vancouver spokesman confirmed that the bridge’s repairs, which cost around $60,000, were complete and the crossing had reopened to the public on April 24.
He said the community was already showing its appreciation for having the trail bridge back.
“The response from the community has been great – within minutes of the bridge reopening, people were on it taking photos,” the spokesman said.
Cable Pool Bridge offers beautiful views of the canyon and leads on to a trail to Cable Pool, a popular fishing spot.
