Boy Scout Troop 632 constructs two walking bridges at Indian Crossing Trails Park

An improvement that will benefit community members at Indian Crossing Trails Park was recently undertaken by Life Scout Chris Kuenzer. The project was part of a process to become an Eagle Scout. On Saturday, Nov. 3, Kuenzer and his crew of Boy Scout Troop 632 volunteers successfully completed the building and installing of two bridges at the Tecumseh Indian Crossing Trails Park.The bridges span two often muddy and sometimes flooded areas of the heavily used outer hiking trail at the park on a trail that begins at Standish Dam.“The trail crosses several low lying boggy areas and the foot bridges will be a welcome addition to all that use the trail,” said Shelley Lim, Tecumseh Parks and Recreation Department Cultural and Leisure Services Director. Kuenzer planned, designed and carried out the project by pre-assembling his bridges, cutting his materials at his home several weeks earlier before having his crew carry tons of lumber, cement, wheel barrows and tools one-half mile down the trail to the site of the actual bridge locations.The project will fulfill the Eagle Project requirement, which is one of many steps needed to reach scouting’s highest rank of Eagle Scout.Boy Scout Troop 632 is based at the Riverbend Friends Church in Tecumseh.
