Bridge Repair This Sunday (6/27) at 10:00 AM

We need your help to re-open trail 3! You may have heard that several bridges were displaced by a flash flood that followed heavy rains on Wednesday. Although this was a more severe flood than March of last year, the damage was significantly reduced by the pillar systems and anchoring we added last year. With a big crew, we should be able to swing most of the bridges back in place in a couple hours. The biggest job will be moving one bridge about 60 feet, righting the pillar system, and anchoring this bridge to immobile objects on both ends.

Meet at the far parking lot by the ball diamonds at 10:00 am. Please bring plenty of water. Wear gloves and sturdy shoes.

Thanks,

Mike
