A website devoted to the campaign to relocate Dover's pedestrian foot bridge is now live. The website contains information about efforts so far to move the bridge out of storage to a new home that spans the Cocheco River from One Washington Center to Henry Law Park. In addition to background information, including Save Our Bridge Committee members, the site hopes to expand fundraising.
The website can be viewed at www.dovercoveredbridge.org, or by clicking on the image to the right.
The Save Our Bridge Committee continues to raise money and in-kind donations. Among the businesses and contractors who have pledged services are Moores Crane Rental; Skip Powell Electric; McEneaney Survey Associates; Turcotte Concrete; John Turner Consulting; North/South Construction; Genius Switch Studio; and Great Mills Management. Additional donations have been made by the Bleiler Family Memorial Fund.
Committee members continue to encourage residents and community members to help support the fundraising efforts.
Committee Chair Ray Bardwell recently updated the City Council on the project. The meeting can be viewed here and clicking on the City Manager's Report.
Donations can be made to the City of Dover, 288 Central Ave., Dover, NH 03820, to the attention of "Foot Bridge Fund."
