THE STORY:

When I first heard of Bridges to Prosperity (B2P) the idea of helping isolated communities gain safer reliable access to markets and education seemed like a great idea.  It’s not just charity but giving a tool the community can use for many years to improve their lives.  Little did I know a year after hearing about my companies involvement with B2P I would have the opportunity to help design, plan and construct a suspension bridge in Bolivia. 

It’s exciting to be involved with the longest pedestrian suspension bridge constructed by B2P at 127.5 m (~418ft).  Which will provide access for hundreds of people every day, especially during the rainy seasons, to the other side of the river. Children will be able to attend school and everyone will have better access to all parts of the community, including health care. 

Because of the size of the bridge and difficulties working in remote communities our team has been designing and planning this bridge for almost a year.  Now we move into the construction phase which I will be part of 2 teams traveling to Llapallapani, Bolivia in mid July 2015 for an overall construction duration of 4 weeks.  Because of the duration and complexity of the project we have two teams traveling for 2 weeks each.  The whole team is made up of members from Kiewit and Parsons Brinckerhoff.  I will be the construction manager for the first team and will overlap with the second team.

Your tax deductible donation to Bridges to Prosperity, on my behalf will help with construction expenses along with supplies/gifts for the locals and help B2P continue to help communities around the world. 

Thank you so much for your support!
-Chris
