As of this week, an engineer has signed off on plans for the bridge reconstruction. Due to the magnitude of the rebuild, it was necessary to get an engineer to build the plans so that we can ensure the safety of our members.
The new construction will begin the week of the 16th. This will include forming and pouring a concrete foundation that will serve as barrier to the sub surface of the bridge. This is done to protect the ground underneath the bridge from eroding like it did before. Underneath the bridge is a large over flow pipe that allows water to drain from 11/12 lake as the level exceeds normal levels. As you can imagine this pipe puts out a lot of water after some of the larger rainfall events that have occurred.
Once the concrete footings are poured, reconstruction of the bridge will begin. I will continue to update you via The Community as well as Twitter.
If you have any questions regarding this please feel free to contact me anytime.
