The January, 2007 issue of the Journal of Protective Coatings and Linings featured an article about cathodic protection on concrete bridges. It includes information and photos from our projects as well as a general overview of cathodic protection and the approach taken by D.O.T.’s to use this technology to preserve their bridges.
The History Channel’s Modern Marvels program produced a special on the Pacific Coast Highway, with a section relating to cathodic protection and our repair & restoration work on the Patterson Memorial Bridge in Gold Beach, Oregon.
