Small crew needed for Gabion project at Milo McIver

February 20 at 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

Free

Crew Leader: Patrick Keavney

We’re partway through a project to prop up a failing bridge with gabions that we’re building onsite.  Four of the six gabions are in place and filled with rock.  The last two need to be filled in order to stabilize the bridge and complete the project.  A small crew is needed because of the tight quarters working under the bridge.

Work will involve shoveling gravel or placing flat rock in the toter, driving it to the work site over muddy trail that has some hills, and hand-placing the rock in the gabions.

What to wear: Boots (tennis shoes are not allowed). Due to the wet conditions in the creek bed, rubber boots are permitted.

                        Long sleeved shirts recommended

                        Rain gear as appropriate for the weather

                        Eye protection is recommended (eye glasses, safety glasses, etc.)

            TKO will supply hard hats and safety glasses
