The Bridge is Back!

Yes, we put the bridge back in place on Monday. The West abutment was completely rebuilt with a wing wall using all the original material and 37 yards of concrete backing it up. The brook was also moved back to the middle channel. The carpentry work will be completed in May and until then, the trusses will be covered and protected from the weather. We will also be applying NO-CHAR to the entire bridge structure to hopefully protect it from arson. Currently the trail is back open and will remain so, even when the carpentry work is being completed.
