CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A new bridge is going up at Coonskin Park in Charleston.

Officials plan to break ground for the $6.2 million project on Thursday. The bridge will provide a new entryway, connecting the park to U.S. Route 119 in Mink Shoals.

After the bridge’s completion, another road leading past an Air National Guard base to the park will be closed to through traffic. That road closure was a stipulation in a federal improvement plan to make the base more secure and keep it, too, from being closed.
