Team BRIDGE

 
 

Bridge Site

Whisky Creek is located just south of Calvin's Burton entrance. It is currently overgrown with shrubbery and foliage. The bridge needs to be placed in a location which primarily allows members of Holland Home a safe and easy path to the Ministry Center and Calvin's Campus.

Objectives:

  • Safe for retirement community to use, especially during winter months
  • Barrier Free
  • Effective in dealing with elevation difference between banks
  • Meets codes for building
  • Fulfills needs of Holland Home and Raybrook residents
  • Fulfills needs of Woodlawn CRC congregation
  • Cost effective
  • Possibly large enough to allow golf carts to pass
  • Not harmful to surrounding environment
