Bridge Replacements

This page provides information on the bridge replacement work on the Silver Spoon Trails.

Bishop’s Bridge (1st bridge on M Loop)

The replacement bridge has been designed (Dave Rhodes), funding has been approved (DRXC), construction has been approved (Town of Deep River), and work on the bridge has started (coordinated by Tim Sykes). The replacement bridge will handle the usual winter loads associated with Nordic skiing (skiers and trail grooming equipment), as well as some trail maintenance vehicles (e.g., tractors , trailers) for work on the M, S, H, and B Loops.

Many thanks to the Four Seasons Conservancy for providing about $15,000 in funding for this project.

Photos will be added here as work progresses.

Unfortunately work on the Bishop’s bridge replacement has been suspended as a key worker is unavailable this fall. Installation will resume late summer 2023.
