Big Brook-VS-Footbridge

Precision CNC's operate utilizing water to cut tiny machine parts so is it any wonder that our nice new 28' footbridge took a trip downstream during the last rainstorm?

Pittsburg, as well as much of New England, got a lot more rain than it needed, the temperatures rose, and a combination of the two brought flash floods down from the mountains, diluting the tributaries and flooding the Connecticut River Valley. Big Brook is one of those 'tributaries'.

So now we can figure in another 'work party' (yee ha!) to drag the planking out of the alders and set the metal truss back into place using a winch, blood, sweat & tears. If this sounds like your kind of fun, just let us know and we'll sign you right up!

And seeing this is the second time in less than a year that we've received 100 year rains, perhaps we should raise our side supports a couple of feet?
