Carp and Maple River HomeWaters – Spring Update

The Maple River is going through a dramatic evolution this year. CRA and partners are looking forward to the rebirth of nearly a mile of river with the removal of the Lake Kathleen Dam. Plans are also underway to replace the Woodland Road crossing with a free-span timber bridge as well as replace a private two-track crossing on the East Branch with a small free-span bridge.

The contractor has been selected and we are anticipating a kick-off for construction as soon as permits are in hand. The total project cost for the dam and timber bridge is currently estimated at $2.7 million and we are closing the funding gap of $500K in the meantime. This is an all-hands-on-deck effort – every dollar counts! Please help us reach our Free Span the Maple River dream by Donating Today.
