The trail has been narrowed up today it is only 5’6” wide at the bottom entrance. Large rocks have been placed to narrow the trail.
Please respect the agreement MIRCC has with the landowners for the trial. Foot Traffic and ATV’s only, NO CARS or TRUCKS.
Friday was a day of celebration and a big day of construction!
The nose of the Bridge touched down on the west side (slide side) of the river Friday late afternoon.
As the remainder of the permanent sub-structure is built and attached on the east side and pushed over the river, sections of the 70’ light weight launch nose will be removed until the complete sub-structure is across the river. Then the bridge will be lowered a few feet onto the concrete abutments, this work is scheduled to be complete by next Tuesday afternoon.
There is still much work to be accomplished after the bridge is in place and attached to the concrete abutments. The steel-driving surface (decking) will be placed atop the sub-structure. All the cribbing and shoring that was necessary for the roller system must be removed. A small amount of concrete will be poured on the top of the abutments to bring them square and even with the driving surface. Then the approaches will be built using eco-blocks and gravel, to connect the driving surface of the bridge to the roadway on both sides of the river.
The construction will enter into a time period similar to when the roller system was installed when it seemed like progress was very slow. We may all feel like “what is taking so long” but this is standard for this bridge type project.
Currently anticipating completion between Aug. 8th and 16th.
Mr. David Faigin, owner of one of the properties that the trail passes through, has consulted his attorney and, because of repeated use of the trail by vehicles other than ATV’s and foot traffic, has notified MIR that he will be closing the trail to all ingress and egress.

Payments posted as of 7/18
The elaborate roller system being constructed to "launch" the bridge is taking longer than scheduled. Abutment construction was completed ahead of schedule and under budget but now the schedule is about 4 days behind, not unusual in a project of this type. The contractor hopes to make time up in the bridge assembly and launching phase. Best estimate of completion date is now toward the end of the first week of August.
We now have 70% of owners paid or making payments on their assessments and we hope as bridge completion date approaches more owners will start paying, allowing them access to the bridge. 79 owners have not made any payment toward their assessments. THANK YOU! to the 170 owners who are paying for the Canyon Falls Bridge!
Bridge construction is on schedule, concrete abutments are in place, and all the bridge parts are on site. An elaborate roller system will be constructed the week of July 7th. The schedule is to start rolling out the bridge the week of July 14th. If the roller system construction is easily completed we should remain on schedule for a completion date on August 1st, but as with many building projects, unknowns could arises which can delay the schedule.
The three motions below were unanimously past by the Board, after being presented by the Executive Committee.
1.“Move to mail the gate code to only the property owners in Blocks B, C and E who are Members In Good Standing.”
2.“Move to mail the gate code to property owners in Blocks B, C, and E who were paid up through 4/30/14 and are making minimum $50/month payments for 2014-15 regular & special assessments.”
3.“Move to mail the gate code to property owners in Blocks B, C, and E who are delinquent on assessments prior to 2014 but making minimum $50/month payments on that balance, in addition to $50/month towards the current year (total $100/month).”
$50 per month payers pay $1.66 per day. $100 per month payers pay $3.33 per day. Certainly very fair for everyone!
It was reported by Tom Grenier that the cost to place new Asphalt Grindings between the first arch and Bridal Veil Creek Bridge would be about $15,000. No further action was taken at the present time.
It was decided that Gravel and Asphalt Grindings would be brought in this month. A Volunteer group will be organized for pothole filling on the road from SR-2 to the base of Sunset Falls.
Complete minutes and financials will be post within a few days.
