Bridge at Bittner Park - Eagle Scout Project

Construction starting July 14th - July 19th - Please help me reach my goal

**I would like to clarify that the beneficiary of this project is the Town of Guilford, not my dad (as it states on the page). He will be helping me set up a bank account to put all of the deposits in.**

I am fundraising for...

Brief Summary:
For my Eagle Scout project, I will be constructing a 30' by 4' bridge to improve the Bittner Park trail system in Guilford, CT. This will be a pedestrian and mountain biker accessible bridge.

Description:
This project will involve the construction of a new bridge where there is currently no bridge. There will be platforms at each side of a 15' span over the water. The other 15' will be divided up with ramps to grade on both sides of the bridge.

Money/Funding:
All funds will go toward the construction of this bridge to ensure a long lasting bridge and to ensure the safety of the Bittner Park trail system.

Construction:
This project will start construction in late June through early July. This part of the trail will be closed; however, there will be a way for people using the trail to get by.

In advance, I would like to thank all contributors; all donations are appreciated - wether small or large it still is a great help. Thank you for helping fund for "The Bridge Where No Bridge Has Stood Before!"

Thanks to all supporters so far! I will keep all of you posted on the progress of the construction of the bridge. It will start in early July! Thanks - Michael Neiss
