May 4, 2015


WILMINGTON (May 4, 2015) – A pedestrian bridge over the Brandywine Creek that provides access to Alapocas Run State Park from the Rockford Road area, along with an adjacent parking lot at the Bancroft Mills complex, will close at sunset today while a building at the complex that burned in a fire over the weekend is demolished.

DNREC’s Division of Parks & Recreation announced the closures to ensure park visitors’ safety during demolition of the partially-collapsed building. Demolition work will begin immediately, with the work anticipated to take up to two weeks. In the meantime, the Division of Parks & Recreation encourages park visitors to use nearby parking lots and access points in Brandywine State Park and at the Blue Ball Dairy Barn in Alapocas Run State Park.
