This footbridge was apparently constructed by the owner of property across from Brooksvale Park. It is property (not sure of the exact address) that backs up to the Farmington Canal Trail. It's the part of the canal trail that runs between Brooksvale Avenue and Mt Sanford Rd. The footbridge is very narrow, with a railing on one side only. The barrier with a "nope" sign indicates that it is not for public use. Children at play might ignore the barrier and "nope" sign and possibly get hurt crossing to the other side. Did this footbridge require a permit? If so, was a permit issued by the town? At the very least, it's a potential safety concern.
