Update: Cross-country ski bridge

October 19, 2012

Hurricane Irene certainly left its mark on a number of communities, including Waterville Valley.  The cross-country skiing bridge over the Mad River that was washed away in last year’s storm will be replaced by the end of November, 2012.

According to Mark Decoteau, Town Manager, the Snows Brook Trail is closed to all pedestrian and bike traffic due to the bridge construction project.  Corcoran Pond is being drawn down so that water flow in Snows Brook can be temporarily stopped so that the construction crew can install the bridge at the work site.  The bridge will be delivered between Oct. 25 and Nov. 2 and ready to use this winter!

Decoteau says the town has secured approval from FEMA for a cost overrun on the project, which means that the town of Waterville Valley will get 75% reimbursement on the overage.

The Mad River Trail stepping stones project is nearing completion.  See photos and a report from Dan Newton here.
