Support for Jordan River Bridge

November 24, 2014

CRA is pleased to announce several big steps toward funding a bridge project over the Jordan River. Recent awards include $50,000 from the Charlevoix County Community Foundation, $100,000 from the Frey Foundation and $150,000 from the Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation.

Known locally as Chestonia Bridge, two 16’ wide culverts currently sit where Old State Road crosses the Jordan River (Antrim County). These culverts along with eroding streambanks and worn access trails are causing unnatural stream changes and speed up stream flow to the point where some fish and other aquatic species cannot get upstream. As a popular canoe and kayak launch, this site has a high recreational value as well. Both the health of the river and making this a safe, accessible site for recreationists are top priorities.

Thank you to the Charlevoix County Community Foundation and the Great Lakes Fish and Wildlife Restoration Act for seed funding for this project. We’re eager to start stacking more support with these new private funds to reach the $1 million goal needed for this site. Want to help? Contact CRA to support projects like the Old State Road crossing that benefit the water and people of northern Michigan.
