I-280 "Trench" Project  



As part of ODOT's committment to improve communities surrounding the Veterans' Glass City Skway, ODOT planned the "Trench" project. This project has reconnected city streets and North Toledo neighborhoods separated by the former alignment of I-280.  Work also realigned Front and Summit Streets to intersect with the Craig Bridge.  A multi-use pedestrian path also moves through the corridor beneath the VGCS.
