Cliff Trail – Harpswell
The Town of Harpswell received a grant in 2020 to help make the first half mile of their popular Cliff Trail ADA accessible. This will make a half mile smooth-surface path along the shoreline of tidal Strawberry Creek.
The Town reached out to Crooker to see if we could help with materials; we answered with a resounding yes!!
To date we have supplied 174 CY of gravel, 112 CY of crushed stone, 72 CY of erosion control bark, and 10 stone seats to rest on while you enjoy Cascade Falls at the viewing platform.
We were honored to be asked to be part of this project and we are looking forward to hitting the trail when the Maine Conservation Corps crew has completed the project!
Community Outreach-Crooker Comes Through
Recently, Crooker Construction provided local elementary students a special opportunity to get up close and personal with our heavy machinery. The students had a blast learning about the ins and outs of not only the equipment, but the industry in general.
An article on the visit can be found here (via The Times Record):
Video Produced for the Sewall Pond Outlet Culvert Project
In 2014, Crooker completed the installation of a box culvert across Route 27 in Arrowsic, Maine to help restore the Alewife population in the area. A video that provides background information on the project, along with footage of the fabrication and installation can be found at the link below. Special thanks Kennebec Estuary Land Trust for allowing us to share this video:
