My Town: Whites Bridge Historical Society granted oversight of bridge area

LOWELL, Mich.—  The Whites Bridge Historical Society is taking on a larger role in the community.

The group, which is leading the effort to rebuild the historic Whites Bridge, was recently granted a land use permit to oversee and maintain the north side canoe/kayak launch area, as well as the bridge abutment, boardwalk and parking areas. 

The Whites Bridge Historical Society is working on securing grant funding and fundraising to build a replica of the bridge, which was destroyed by arson on July 7, 2013.   The project is expected to cost approximately $400,000.
