The State Lands Development and Renovation category provides funding to two state agencies to repair, renovate, and develop outdoor recreation facilities on existing recreation lands. As the popularity of outdoor recreation increases in our state, these grants help address overcrowding, ensure our outdoor amenities are safe for public use, improve visitor experience, and allow more people to enjoy our great outdoors.
The scope of work is to replace two bridges in the Mount Si Natural Resources Conservation Area. The two bridges are on the Mount Si Trail and Francis North interpretive trail, which are at the trail head. The interpretive trail is closed to the public because of the unsafe bridge. The two bridges were built about 15 years ago with natural wood stringers. They are rotten and the bridges are on the verge of collapsing.
