When: Saturday, October 8, 2011, 8:30 am
What: The wooden-trestle bridge 500 feet east of County Road 43 was renovated in 2009. A temporary deck was installed to circumvent damage during trail construction. The work party will remove the temporary deck and install a new one with side rails.
Elkhart County Parks will provide the lumber, bolts, screws, an electric generator, saw and other equipment.
Participation: If you plan to help, please notify me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What to bring: Below is a list of equipment we will need. Bring the equipment you have on hand:
- Gloves, tape measure, pencil to mark boards
- Hammer and wrecking bar.
- Electric drill (we will have a generator but cordless drills will be useful too). Driver bits for Torx screws will be supplied.
We will provide drinking water.
Where: The work site is on County Road 43 east of Middlebury. From Middlebury travel east on County Road 16 (
Warren St.) and turn north on County Road 43 at approximately 2 miles. The trail crosses County Road 43 within ¾ mile. Park in the trail parking lot and walk about 500 feet east to the bridge.
