The Kenbrook Bridge Team seeks to address Kenbrook Bible Camp’s need for maintenance and emergency access across a small stream on the property that separates their main office location from cabins on the northwestern portion of the campus. Kenbrook Bible Camp's mission is to facilitate a closer connection to God, self, others, and nature for all guests. The bridge site was selected by the Kenbrook staff based on the greatest need for accessibility. An existing footbridge in this location cannot support passage of heavy equipment used for camp maintenance nor the ATV used for emergency response. The bridge team proposes a 16-foot-long by 8-foot-wide concrete culvert for the site. The culvert has been designed in compliance with AASHTO structural requirements and all elements of the structure are detailed in a complete drawings sheet set, serving as a reference for on-site construction in May.
