HOLDEN — Materials have been delivered to begin construction on a bridge across a creek to allow access to the backwoods and Miller Lake at Miller Mausoleum in Holden.
Holden Boy Scouts Troop 727 painted the rust primer on the steel bridge structure on Monday, July 8.
The structure was custom built by Clarence Silvers and delivered by him and Dan Miles over the weekend.
Besides applying primer to the steel structure, Troop 727 also did tree trimming and mulching of trees in the front of the property.
Carl Cranfill, owner of the Miller Mausoleum property, and great-grandson of the builder, Joseph M. Miller, will apply the second coat of paint and Mike Shaw and Pat Clarida will determine proper placement of the steel structure on Wednesday, July 10, with use of a transit.
After the bridge footings are dug and concrete poured, Silvers will use a crane to place the structure over the creek.
Then volunteers will assist in constructing the wood bridge.
