The timber walkway attached to the Midnight Pass Road bridge over Grand Canal and the sidewalk leading up to the bridge was repaired by Sarasota County Public Works crews between July 31 and Aug. 4.
A broken handrail and a damaged support beam were among the concerns. Afterward, crews inspected the walkway from a boat in Grand Canal. The bridge is located just east of Commonwealth Drive.
The walkway was built by the Siesta Key Association, records indicate. In 1990, it was dedicated with a plaque to former Siesta Key Association director Robert Tribolet, a retired colonel in the U.S. Air Force.
