Thetford — The Thetford Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying over-height vehicles that have repeatedly struck the Sayre’s Covered Bridge over the last several months.

The most recent incident occurred around 7 a.m. on Thursday, and caused damage to both ends of the bridge.

“The town is concerned that continued impacts can possibly lead to structural damage and loss or closure of one of the town’s two remaining covered bridges,” Thetford Police Chief Michael Evans said in a news release.

The historic bridge on Tucker Hill Road in Thetford Center is posted for vehicles with a maximum height of 10 feet, 6 inches.

Anyone with information is asked to call 802-785-4608.
