Traylor Team Joins Bridges to Prosperity to Build Footbridge in Panama

From July 9 – 23, six Traylor team members joined up with five COWI partners and the nonprofit organization Bridges to Prosperity to build a 66-meter footbridge for the Chiguiri Arriba community in rural Panama. Because of the bridge, approximately 200 families are now directly connected to schools, healthcare facilities, markets, farms, and other employment.  

Over the course of two weeks the team made steady progress on the bridge construction, battling rainouts and overcoming daily challenges to finish the bridge on time, all the while getting to know each other as well as members of the community.
