The timber decking on the short I-beam bridge that runs over a farm field access point in the Hardwick section of the Mass Central Rail Trail was showing signs of decay. Mushrooms were growing and several timbers were punky.

With a generous donation from Howe Lumber of new timbers, the dedicated land trust volunteer core set about disassembling the timbers and reinstalling with new Southern Yellow Pine pressure treated timbers. Following are some photos from the two days of work!
