What initial goals have been set for the restoration project?
The initial goals are outlined as follows:
  • The 1st goal requiring action is to complete the construction drawings that will guide the restoration work. The Dewey Bridge Restoration Committee has nearly raised the $5,000 necessary to contract for the construction drawings.
  • A 2nd goal is to establish an interpretive exhibit at the bridge site to inform visitors about the bridge, its history, and the restoration campaign.
  • The 3rd interim goal is to raise 20% ($172,000) of the reconstruction cost. Completion of this goal will enable the Dewey Bridge Restoration Committee to apply for matching fund grants from various sources.
