Hi. My name is Dan Latham and I handle public affairs for the Oregon Department of Transportation on the south coast. I saw your names listed at the bottom of the Bridgehunter.com page for Thomas Creek Bridge.

We have a couple upcoming projects that will affect Thomas Creek Bridge and Reinhart Creek Bridge, about 30 miles up the coast. We will be painting both bridges and making several repairs. Construction begins this summer and will continue for a couple years. We have more details on the project website:

https://www.oregon.gov/ODOT/HWY/REGION3/Pages/Thomas-and-Rei...

Construction will require lane closures at both locations, and some work enclosures will be used.

We realize that there are many bridge enthusiasts or tourists who visit both locations, and they may be disappointed to drive hundreds of miles to find construction at both bridges. We would like to raise awareness of the projects so that folks have the opportunity to adjust their travel plans.

Do you have any suggestions for how we can spread the word? Are there any groups or organizations you think we should contact?

Thanks,

Dan Latham
