West Point Cadets Construct New Trail Bridge at Schunnemunk State Park

Categories: Cadet News, Academics

Schunnemunk State Park has a new pedestrian trail bridge, thanks to a collaboration between the Open Space Institute (OSI), the U. S. Military Academy (USMA) at West Point, the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation (OPRHP), and the Palisades Interstate Park Commission (PIPC).

This project marks the sixth year that OSI has worked with the USMA cadets to design and construct a trail bridge at a New York State Park. The bridge was constructed as part of a senior-year capstone project by cadets, who receive hands-on design and construction experience as they pursue degrees in Civil Engineering and train for their military careers.
