The 70' Bridge is put together. A number of guys went up today to get started on things and not like normal things went way better then expected . We still are going up tomorrow at the same time , leaving Grace Lake at 9:00 am. We need to install the wood stringers. The excavator will be pulling the bridge across at 1:00 pm. So if you were planning on coming up still do and do a little work enjoy a BBQ and watch the bridge be pulled.

Just a heads up there seems to be an accident or something on the lougheed between maple ridge and mission, and the eastbound lane is stopped dead.

I would like to thank everybody that came out in the last couple days and also the other ones who have come out at some time to make this bridge happen. I would also like to make the point to thank Kim for camping with the excavator since Wednesday, being security. :D

We will be posting up in the next little while a volunteer party to lay the decking which will complete the bridge.

We will be cutting the planking to length this Saturday at Kims place in Yarrow, 10am start...if all goes well Cal will pick up the load on Sunday morning and we'll install the bridge deck. If you would like to help out, send me a pm or post here and I will get you the details.
Should be about a 2 hours job, and I will bring a 10' x 10' shelter.
There will be an announcement regarding the decking party. :D

So impressed with the bridge that resulted from all of your efforts. Thought there may be some interest in knowing that we took advantage of brilliant weather, and the bridge, to ride the mountain in the Commander today. Although there is clear evidence of all the rain and wind in the area over the past week, the bridge, albeit frosty, stands strong. Thanks again to all those responsible.
