In the wake of the October 17, 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake, Caltrans commissioned an oral history project to document the personal and professional experiences of Caltrans employees who worked to restore the State's damaged transportation system. At the time of this interview Bob Reyes was an Equipment Operator with Caltrans at the Gilroy Maintenance Station. When the Loma Prieta earthquake happened, he was driving in downtown San Jose he then made it to his home in Gilroy and was called back to work, where his crew was sent to repair the approaches to the Sergants over-crossing. In the days after the earthquake Reyes cleared slides and sealed cracks on Highways 17, 9, and 152 in Santa Cruz County.
