A bridge to the spring season
Despite the piles of snow surrounding the Legacy of the Lakes Museum, the grounds are being prepared for the upcoming season.
A new bridge was placed in the garden area Friday, March 8, on the north side of the main building. The four-ton bridge was brought in on a semi and had to be lifted by a crane and then guided with a rope to its designated spot.
Employees from Contech Engineered Solutions of Carlos, formerly Continental Bridge, donated labor to design and fabricate the bridge and also deck the bridge, according to Bruce Olson, former executive director of the museum. Larry and Diane Zavadil also donated to the cost of the bridge, he said.
Olson, who is now a museum volunteer, said the museum is thankful for its community partners on this project as well as all others who donate to projects at the museum.
It took a lot of collaboration to add a new bridge, said Olson, noting that it is a great addition to the beautiful garden area.
