Millersburg Park Swinging Bridge over Wiconisco Creek (1926)

Millersburg City Council was quick to apply for myriad New Deal grants including road paving, recreational facility improvements, and a project for the swinging bridge. The bridge was later destroyed in the 1936 winter flood, whereafter Dauphin County received 6,000 WPA workers who patrolled the riverbanks, participated in some rescues, and helped clean up flood-stricken areas.
