Anti-Slip Treatment for Trollheim Bridge

Help the Friends of Mount Vernon Trail make safety improvements to Bridge 31 near Theodore Roosevelt Island. Many refer to Bridge 31 as "Trollheim" based on its history of being slippery, particularly after rainfall.  We'll be implementing multiple recommendation from The Mount Vernon Trail Safety Study on Trollheim.

We need your help today to purchase a non-slip treatment to apply to the bridge. This treatment will either be an industrial strength paint non-skid paint coating or an industrial strength anti-skid strips.  The choice of treatment options will be determined by an NPS compliance review. 

Please make a donation today to help make Trollheim safe.  The Friends of Mount Vernon Trail recently scrubbed the mold, moss and mildew off the bridge. Over the next two months we will also removing debris from between boards, fixing loose boards and replacing damaged boards.  

Any  funds  raised  in  excess  of  the  goal  will  be  utilized  for  improvements  on  additional  bridges.

The Friends of Mount Vernon Trail is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Your donation may be tax deductible.
