I am concerned about the future design of bridges in the Big Thompson Canyon. In 1976 our land was spared when the bridge failed. In 2013 We lost 100' of river front property BECAUSE THE BRIDGE DID NOT FAIL. Our cabin survived the flood but is now 15-25 feet away from a cliff; a result of water diverting around the bridge. Our vehicles are stranded, our FEMA assistance is limited and life as we have known it will never be the same. We plan to meet the challenges ahead. It would be emotionally helpful if we had access to current and ongoing photo updates of the road rebuilding. We do not have access to ATV's and need to get in to winterize and/ or move home as soon as we are able. Also, having lost the access road to our subdivision, what kind of bank mitigation might we expect in the course of rebuilding? Also would like to know how well inspections will take place and when it would be advised to use our water. Prefer not to contaminate our homes waterlines if that is a possibility. What is the status of Power and phone utilities in the canyon? Real time updates most appreciated.
