I'm surprised the drilling and bolting of the four corners for the bridge has been completed. From the looks of them when we stacked them I thought it would take much longer to drill, move, drill, restack and drive the bolts through. :)

Actually if everything goes to plan the only thing Marty experiences is additional shade.  I don't think we're supposed to be in the stream at all.

Hopefully, Marty will stay out of the way.

Poor Marty - things will be a little rough for him for a few days.

Impressive photos.

Work done at Sheepscot 8/8/18

The four corners that the bridge sits on were bolted together. Took the day to complete, and may not seem like much, but they are 3 wood blocks, each one weighs around 300 lbs or more and to drill through all three the top block on each one had to be removed to finish drilling the last two. Then pounding the long bolts through was another chore in itself.

Piles were sorted and loaded at Sheepscot in preperation for the contractor.

Work went on at the bridge site to prep for the piles, including the contractor rigging the crane up for setting piles.

Grass was mowed at Alna Center to be ready for this weekend.

Sheepscot was a very busy place yesterday, and if something happened that was not mentioned its not intentional.

John, I thought that road bed and ROW looked familiar.

A copy of the main narrow gauge presentation to the town of gray was at the museum lunch table today and it was very professionally done.

BTW, there was another Marty Moose Trout sighting today. With all this hot weather Marty is eagerly awaiting the shade of our new bridge.
