Nevada County community organizations are rallying one more time to send a message to the Governor to save the covered bridge at Bridgeport. A local group known as the Save Our Bridge Campaign Committee is urging the community to write letters to Governor Brown in a final push to save the bridge. President of the South Yuba River Parks Association, Dave Anderson, says the goal is to make sure money approved by the Senate and assembly stays in the budget.
Bridgeport supporters are encouraged to call the governor’s office or send letters, emails or faxes no later than June 13.
This Sunday the committee is also have a special event down at the Covered Bridge.
Photos can then be posted to Governor Brown’s Facebook and Twitter pages and South Yuba River State Park Association’s Facebook page.
South Yuba River State Park is a substantial contributor to the region’s economy and Bridgeport – the longest single span covered bridge in the world – is a major draw to the county. According to the Department of Parks and Recreation, this park attracts up to 890,000 visitors each year.
