Guys thanks for the work it looks great, Let me know when you go back to finish I would like to come and help. We need to secure that bridge down especially on and off ramps so we don't loose it again, to much hard work to keep rebuilding these bridges when spillway is opened.

Thanks again for hard work.

We are going this afternoon to try and finish. The four posts are cemented in and probably gonna drive footers in at the ramp ends.

Beavers are done.. Bryan, Jay, Alex, Myself, Ron and lil Daniel.. finished the return bridge today, just before the storm front rolled through.

While we were out there, the small pipeline between after the berm bridge was being widened. they cleared about 25' of woods in the small wooded area before the large pipeline.. the return trail between the new cleared pipeline and CHU-CHUT entrance is very soft. Bryan and I raked that section of trail clearing debris.

As we were finishing up, a white Suzuki samurai with the Japanese sun painted on it's side, came into the pipeline for some joy riding.. we called the police to report it, but before they responded the knuckle heads left. PLease, if you see anything out there, report it.

Nice job guys! The bridge looks great! And that's crazy that lil old Suzuki is still up and rolling around! I remember seeing that one years and years ago when I lived in Metairie. Hopefully they didn't mess up too much back there.
