Kinzua Sky Walk Grand Opening Today

Kinzua Sky Walk Grand Opening Today a Time for Celebration

BRADFORD, Pa. – The grand opening of the Kinzua Sky Walk marks the rebirth of a historic McKean County treasure.

The grand opening for the Kinzua Sky Walk is set for 1 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15, in Kinzua Bridge State Park, McKean County’s only state park.

Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Secretary Richard Allan will be on hand with several other state and local officials to cut the ribbon marking a new chapter in the Kinzua Viaduct – the structure that was once the highest and longest railroad bridge in the world.

The grand opening will include a keepsake ribbon that will be divided into pieces and given to those who want to take a piece of history home with them.

A reception will follow the ceremony, which will also include the dedication of a new historical marker by the Kinzua Bridge Foundation.

“We are very excited to once again offer people a chance to ‘Walk the Tracks Across the Sky,’” said Linda Devlin, executive director of the Allegheny National Forest Visitors Bureau, the destination marketing organization for McKean County. “People from around the world have been very excited for this grand opening. The Kinzua Viaduct holds a special place in people’s hearts and now, we hope the Kinzua Sky Walk can fill the void after the tornado.”

Devlin also noted that there is a special treat that awaits those who attend the grand opening.

They will be able to get a glimpse of new Zippo Jeep, which will not make its official debut until the weekend. The Jeep will be officially unveiled at the Zippo/Case Museum from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17. The Zippo/Case Museum is located at 1932 Zippo Drive in Bradford.
