Eight Creston superdudes (Kevin Huck, Art Brasch, John Tracy, John Hash, Tom Bush, Russ Spiller, Marshall Fisher and Brian Shaw) installed the third trail footbridge of the year today. This one was extra long - 22 feet - in order to span the width of the Catawba River at the site of the new trailhead for the Allison Trail. While extremely strong - easily able to support at least 5 burly men - it is a bit bouncy and has more than a modest bow to it. So plans are afoot (pun intended) to add a couple of stiffeners to the structure to address both issues. An update will be provided here when that happens.
