Chikugo River Bridge Slated for Repair

The bridge over the Chikugo River between Okawa, Fukuoka Prefecture, and Saga City, a nationally designated important cultural treasure, will undergo a major facelift and repair this fall. The work will require two years to complete, and involves strengthening the supports and repainting the surface. The bridge was built in 1935 as part of the national railroad’s Saga Line, but area residents developed such a fondness for it that it was been kept for pedestrian use even after service on the line was discontinued.
