Finish the Bridge in Saxapahaw Starting at 9AM
December 5, 2023
If you would like to help to complete the bridge in Saxapahaw on Tuesday Dec 5th at 0900 come on out. We are going to lay the decking and rock armor at the base of the bridge. It is not a big job but many hands will make the job quicker. We need to carry in all the deck boards and materials and then do the actual work. Dennis and Rusty have done some really nice work getting the bridge to this point and now it is time to finish up the final work.

What to Bring: Tools will be provided. If you have a battery powered screwdriver or impact driver please bring it along. It will make the work go faster.
