Mid August 2012 Reminder

August Trail Improvement Day at Chippewa River

Our August trail improvement day on Saturday, August 18, will complete the restoration of the Chippewa River Trail that we began in June. 

In the last month, Jerry Sazama has been working with the DNR and Chippewa County to complete a major project to stabilize the bank, extend the culvert, and build a proper drainage way down to the river hardened with rock. The project completely eliminates the need to replace the destroyed bridge.

Our part of the project will be doing final grading and finishing work on the tread that will replace the bridge, and hauling away the salvageable remains of the old bridge to storage for use on future projects.

For this trail improvement day, please meet at the Hwy CC Ice Age Trail parking area, 2 miles north of Cornell on Hwy CC, at 9:30 AM. Bring a lunch and insect protection (in case they make an appearance). Wear long pants, boots, and good work gloves, bring water and lunch.

Please RSVP by email if you plan to make it to this work day as it sure helps with planning.
