Heading north back towards the bridge in the railroad's truck. We were dropping off rolls of road cloth about every 350 feet for track construction.









Jeff Verney cut down the gravel ramps leading up to the bridge put in for truck traffic. Gravel had to be added on the north side of the bridge to take the dip out of the grade coming off the bridge.

Gravel cut down on the south side of the bridge. The grade had been built right up to the bridge decking.





The north side of the bridge.



Fabric laid out on the grade from the end of track.





The track that was laid last week.

Thanks Brendan for the pics and reports. It looks that everything is on the right track to make Trout Brook Preserve within October. it 'll be great to see #9 on the bridge and beyond.

Wire was installed from the north end of Sawmill Curve to about 100 feet from the bridge today.

Removed some dirty material from the south side of the bridge and constructed a new ramp to get onto the north end of the bridge (Contractor Jeff removed the ramp he put in).

Now I need to talk Contractor Jeff into backing over the bridge one last time with a load of Rip-Rap to cap off the slopes in the shoreland zone by the bridge.

Some photos from today (Saturday) showing spiking and phone line placement north toward the bridge.
What–me worry?
