The Middle Bridge replacement project

KNSC salutes the many people who willingly give their time and talent in behalf of the trails. Volunteers – you’re our heros!

middlebridgeIIIPlanning for this project, the biggest undertaking in club history, began following the spring washout of 2013. In the summer of 2015, the boots finally hit the ground. Our volunteers put their shoulders to the wheel starting on May 14th, and wrapped up on October 16th. This $30,000 project was funded by KNSC and the City of Hancock, with grants from Keweenaw Community Foundation, the Community Foundation of the U.P., and Plum Creek Foundation.
