In addition to rebuilding the bridge, the plan included raising the superstructure to increase channel flow, to improve drainage and to address a hard transition on the down-hill approach.
The Butano campground is closed December through March, so this winter was an ideal time to work on the bridge.
Thanks very much to you, the Coastside State Park Donors, for your support over the past years. Your generosity allowed us to invest in this upgraded bridge and be ready to open the park when the shelter in place is lifted.
Thank you, also, to the Santa Cruz District Roads and Trails crew for doing such an excellent and beautiful job.
