Smaller bridge joins larger cousin on trail

January 8, 2004

Nope, it wasn't dejvu.

If the placement of a small bridge inside the Pebblebrooke retirement community in Basehor last week seemed familiar to onlookers, there's a simple explanation.

The new, smaller bridge is nearly an exact replica of a large bridge fixed into place at the community three months earlier.

On Tuesday, Dec. 30, the 1 1/2-ton, 22-foot-long bridge was placed at the south end of the retirement community. The arched steel bridge is approximately six feet wide and features eight laser cut tree emblems.

The new bridge has a big brother in the Pebblebrooke neighborhood, a three-ton, 48-foot structure, which was fixed into place in September 2003.

The additions of the small and large bridges allow Pebblebrooke residents, ages 55 and up, to walk their private trail from one end of the community to the other.

Pebblebrooke owner and developer John Bonee and Jack Brock, a Basehor resident, are the principal builders of both bridges.
