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

Construction on the $8.3 million project will begin in 2019. The bridge is expected to closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic in mid-February for approximately nine months during construction. The Great Lakes Construction Company, Hinckley, will serve as the general contractor.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​



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 their 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 which is set to begin later this month.​
