Progress is being made on repairs to the Long White Bridge at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens which was severely damaged by a falling maple tree on July 7.
Some of the safety barricades that were in place on my last Update have been re-positioned which allowed a closer look when I was there on August 20.
A garden cherub is supervising the whole process, but couldn’t tell me what this yellow thing is.
The maple tree that fell was at the far left, on the other side of the bridge. That end of the bridge sustained the most damage, but cracking of the fascia and decking, along with the support framing went the length of the structure, leading to a major overhaul.
The view through the gazebo is not as dramatic without the white bridge; a few long blooming Azaleas spiff up the lawn. I look forward to taking a similar shot when the repairs are complete.
