U R WELCOME.
Tentatively, 2021 is the timeline for getting the bridge done. We are still in the process of having Chaparral Construction from Colorado visit the site and give us a bid. The reason for this is that they work full time on rivers, riparian zones and roads for private, federal and state projects. Building bridges is one of their specialties and where we got the idea as they have built many here in Colorado.
Also, there is opportunity for possible cost share funds and Mike Adams is working on a grant proposal to that end. More to come.
Consultants, like Nankervis and Chaparral Construction, are necessary and valuable to the SRPG. They reaffirm valid conservation practices as well as bring new ideas to the table.
