During the spring flooding, the foot bridge which crosses Meighan Creek off Okanagan Street became a raft. When the flood waters receded the bridge came to rest on the opposite side of the creek. It seems it is a very solidly built bridge as it successfully made its journey in one piece, but is very heavy. All human powered efforts have failed to budge it.
Recently the owner of the property, Patrick Place, miraculously had the bridge moved and placed back into its original position. The Armstrong Spallumcheen Trails Society, and we imagine, all citizens who enjoy the safe, easy passage it provides, would like to give heartfelt thanks to Patrick, and all who participated in this recovery.
Yours in outdoor adventure,
Armstrong/Spallumcheen Trails Society
