Let's not forget about the folks working our table at the National Narrow Gauge Convention in Minneapolis.  Thanks Jeff and crew!

Since the bridge is apparently not going to be moved when 'we' would like it to be, the parking lot situation is going to be critical in the morning. Let's park off campus in the morning. I volunteer to help with parking and would like at least 2 others to help in the morning. We will need to keep the public out of the way of the bridge move. Once the bridge is on 218, we can resume(?) our normal tasks.

As I understand it, bridge move tentatively scheduled at 5:30 AM.  IF all goes well, the bridge should arrive at 218 ROW before 7:00 (three miles at 3MPH).

The contractor is saying 9:00am - 5:30am would certainly be a much better time. Maybe Jason can change his mind.

The times have been set forth by the permit (to my understanding) as the morning rush traffic has tapered off at 9:00a.m.
Track laborer, roadmaster, general laborer, and much more.

That rush is usually over before 8 a.m.

Except for our president.

Is there a planned day for the bridge to be moved into place?  Some of us would want to be there for that historic event!!

Also when and what volunteer work still needs to be done to prepare for that moment.  I can certainly be there at those times...

Due to severe damaging winds in the area Monday night and yesterday, is there any chance someone can do a patrol in the morning for downed trees? I would if I was available, but wont be out of work till 9a.m.

Work done on Saturday Sept 8:

* Bridge: the move is done, the bridge is in place over the brook but not yet down on the pilings.  They started out around 7:30 or so but had trouble getting out of the parking lot.  They backed up, fixed some things, and by 8:30 were on Cross Road.  Then they ran into problems getting on to 218.  Once they got on it things seemed pretty smooth after that.  I caught them at the fire house, then half an hour later as they were coming down from the Alna Store and crossed the brook on the highway bridge.  They backed in on the ROW, then to the bridge site, and eventually crossed the stream.
* Fred was cleaning up the spot that the bridge sat.
* Birthday party with 2 cars (60 people).
* Concert
* Board meeting.
