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.
