MT. JEWETT – A ground-breaking ceremony for the Visitors Center at the Kinzua Bridge State Park near Mt. Jewett is scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 21.
The time has yet to be set by the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR).
"I invite everyone to attend the ground-breaking ceremony," Linda Devlin told the Kane Republican. "DCNR has not yet announced the time, but we think it will be late morning or early afternoon. This is an important next step in the region’s tourism development."
Devlin is the executive director of the Bradford-based Allegheny National Forest (ANF) Visitors Bureau, which has been pushing for the Visitors Center project at the park for years.
