Alain Brunet sent Sandy Juba an email describing the bridge rebuilding done by him, Don Doran and Jim Graff on the walkway over the Addison Canal on one of our walking trails. The TGO Nature Center paid for the materials and these gentlemen provided the labor to make this bridge safer for our trail walks. Below is Alain’s email.

Hello Sandy,

The attached pictures show the Walkway Bridge over the Addison Canal before and after the re-surfacing done today. As planned you obtained a day permit from St. John River Authority, allowing us to drive a Jeep from TGO – Addison Way on a dirt road for a distance of a mile to the canal. On March 22, 2016, Jim and I went to Home Depot and got a special price for TGO and we brought the wood to my lot to pre-drill 4 nail holes in each of the 100 planks. Jim Graff, a TGO resident drove his Jeep loaded with 100 planks of treated wood of 1 x 6 x 38’’ over a rough terrain dirt road to the canal. He is also the one who got rid of the ugly rusted tub that was next to the bridge as shown on the March 2 picture. Jim along with Don Doran and I volunteered our time to remove the rotten wood surface of the bridge, repair a rotten section of one of the street light pole used as structure and, nail new planks in place. On this Wednesday, March 23, 2016, the weather was perfect so, the job was done as planned and budgeted. Don, Jim and I are glad to have been part of this project and to help the TGO community.
