Save the Confluence Bicycle Bridge

JUN 20 2017


Confluence, PA, named for its location at the junction of the Casselman River and Laurel Hill Creek with the Youghiogheny River.  To thousands of bicycle and hiking tourists each year the bridge connects travelers and other passersby with direct access to the town.  Well known as one of the first trail town communities along the Great Allegheny Passage, a scenic 150-mile rail trail.  With restaurants and B&B's as good as you'll find anywhere in Pennsylvania, this is a must visit town!

The bridge needs more than a resurfacing and plans are in place to replace the wood with a concrete surface that will last for years!  The campaign to raise money for the project was greatly aided by Somerset Trust Bank who generously offered a matching $.50 for each dollar raised.  Together with your donations we can reach the Save the bridge goal much sooner.
