Since the historic Dewey Bridge was burned down last year, plans have been in the works to either restore the bridge or put something in its place. A group of private residents and interested patrons have now stepped up to the plate.
Rouse estimated the cost to replace the bridge, which was no longer in service when it was destroyed last spring, to be around $1 million. Fundraising efforts will include a website, which is still under construction.
It will be an interesting effort by the community, since no tax dollars or government assistance is going to back the Moab restoration.
I will post a link to the fund raising website as soon as it is available, and anyone interested in donating to the cause can get involved.
