Bridge work on #14 got started today with excavation of the broken concrete re-enforcement pieces we quickly installed years ago. Those concrete pieces are being removed for re-purposing or disposal at a later date. Contractor will use gabion baskets filled with rock to shore up the exposed bank and bridge footing. Below are some pictures of first day of work in this area. I'll post more as this project progress's.
