We started this creek bank project last november, and had to stop working on it due to the ground freezing up in early december.

Well, we were able to get back to it on tuesday, and we got it wrapped up this morning.

We ended up not being able to save the origanal bridge like we wanted to, but the finish product looks way better than it would have if we had saved it.

Just a few mixed before and afters

You're right, the new bridge looks better. Did you build the new bridge?

That would be a lovely bridge for a young couple in love and hornier than pole cats in heat to profess their love to each other.

Thanks guys.

Yes, We, I mean my guys built it. But, I did design it. And I stopped by to give moral support from time to time.

whats the purpose behind the 3 angles on the bridge, why not just build it straight across?
just curious

The bridge had to be built above the "Flood Plain elevation"

Origanally the bridge was built flush with the top of the tie retaining wall. It was attatched flush with the wall with screws, and the other side was set into the dirt on the bank itself. At the elevation, it was over 1.5 Ft to low. Origanal builders didn't permit this project over 20 years ago. So No permit, not the correct height.

We had to have the property serveyed to get the correct bridge hight. So once that was established, and the bottom of the bridge was now a foot and a half higher, making the top 2.5ft higher, we had to find a way to get from the yard to the new height. So we went with the 2 slopes on either end.

Also, when the bridge was built, the home owner wanted to be able to drive his riding mower across. So thats anothe reason it was built so low. Now, with our ramps, its more accessable for the age of the people that live here now.

Well Ron, maybe someday when you have a crisp $100 bill in your pocket and you are in the "right" part of town you can experience that.:laugh:
