​The Clinton Street bridge, which carries state Routes 15, 18 and 66 over the Maumee River in downtown Defiance, has been replaced with a structure that carries four lanes of traffic. The new structure also provides better access across the bridge for pedestrians, bicyclists and those with disabilities.

The new structure was dedicated as the Purple Heart Bridge and reopened on Dec. 2, 2019.

Work on the $8.3 million project began ​in early 2019. Additional work around the structure will continue through summer 2020. The Great Lakes Construction Company, Hinckley, serves as the general contractor.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​


 

​LIVE VIEW OF THE PROJECT 
This view of the Clinton Street bridge in Defiance is courtesy of Sensory Effects Powder Systems which graciously agreed to allow a camera to be mounted on its facility on the north side of the Maumee River. The camera provides a new image every 15 minutes or so, but we suggest to refresh your screen to be sure you're viewing the latest image. This is a great way to view the progress of the bridge replacement project.
