Swinging bridge support
Greg Vorhies of Schaus-Vorhies Manufacturing measures the supports fabricated for the anticipated replacement swinging bridge in Jefferson County Park. Designed by Jefferson County Park employees Shawn Morrissey and Bob Leazer, the supports will soon be galvanized, and galvanized metal pieces also will form the bridge deck. Weather permitting, the bridge could yet be installed this fall. Whether installation is this fall or next spring, Jefferson County Conservation Board is looking forward to hosting a formal bridge dedication in the spring. Area resident and business donors to the swinging bridge fund will receive personal invitations, and anyone with promotional T-shirts will be encouraged to wear them. All area residents and park-users will be encouraged to attend the spring dedication.
