BRIDGING THE GAP:
Protecting, Preserving and Modernizing Ohio's Bridges
The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) continues to invest significant state resources to protecting, preserving and modernizing the more than 42,000 bridges in this state. Ohio inspects more bridges more often than any other state. ODOT’s highly-trained inspectors use the latest technology, as well as lessons from the past, to keep bridges safe for all who use them. While ODOT works with its transportation partners at the local and federal levels to improve the condition of our state’s bridges, sustained safety will rely on continued and improved federal investment in Ohio’s infrastructure.
On this page, you can learn more about ODOT’s bridge inspection program, including information about bridges in your area in the Statewide Bridge Database. Also take a moment to watch "Bridging the Gap – Restoring and Rebuilding the Nation's Bridges." This video from the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) will give you a national perspective of the reliable and safe bridge system Americans have come to depend on.
