Raising the Old Garage Arch

While the new arch erection was underway, let's take a look at the raising of the old garage arch...which would become the LO arch about 10 years later. The arch was separated into 3 sections, stiffener/rigging channels attached, and each section was lifted gradually so that new footings could be installed.

new upwind bulkhead
As soon as this arch section was bolted down, work started on the new upwind bulkhead. This one was wood, as it only needed to last about 10 years.

MC cable interference with the new footings

Sometimes things get in the way. I don't know what this is, but it could be the first MC feeder cable from the power plant to summer camp which we installed in 1976; it was still in service at least in the early 90's.
