Joe's ears perk up whenever he hears about efforts to preserve the historic features of Maine that make our state so special, and that's why he's promoting the Friends of the Frank J. Wood Bridge, a group of Brunswick and Topsham residents who came together in 2016 to prevent the Maine Department of Transportation from destroying the historic 1932 Warren Through-Truss bridge that connects the two communities. MDOT plans on replacing the bridge with a modern concrete highway bridge. The National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Historic Bridge Foundation have joined the Friends in filing a suit in Federal court to prevent the destruction of the bridge.

Joe wishes the Friends good luck in their efforts, and thanks all Mainers who devote time and energy to preserving our beautiful landscape.
