New Salient Bridge Construction, Part Two
Future Eagle Scout, and bridge designer, David Mattes, reviews his plans before starting the crew on their next day of work, Thursday, July 1. The crew did a great job in getting everything stabilized before laying the planking down and installing the uprights for the handrail. Friday should be the final day on the project.
This 9:58 AM view at left, shows the results of the previous day's work.
The view at right, taken around 6:19 PM, shows the bridge now ready for the handrail. A fine job by the Scouts.
The nearly completed bridge sits in the evening sun, after the end of another volunteer day.
This view looks toward the north east and the Landram Ridge, from inside the Salient, at 6:23 PM.
