Part of the Riverwalk collapsed Saturday

COLUMBUS, GA (WXTX) – Almost 50 feet of the Chattahoochee RiverWalk collapsed Saturday. The collapse was caused by work for the new Whitewater course. 

A bypass of water was created, putting water into a channel but instead water was moving behind the RiverWalk and causing panels to move from the water.

Barricades were put in place ahead of time to block people from the un-sturdy section of the walk.

No injuries were reported.
