Veterans' Glass City Skyway
Historic from the start, the Veterans' Glass City Skyway project holds significance in the magnitude of the work, details of the structure and the unprecedented public input process before and during construction.
Throughout the project development process, an extraordinary effort was made to listen to members of the community. State and local officials conducted dozens of public meetings and made hundreds of presentations to inform residents and seek input on numerous questions ranging from the bridge’s design to the bridge’s name.
The commitment to the Maumee River Crossing project demonstrated by area leaders and residents was matched by the state with the single largest investment in the history of ODOT.
The concrete structure is the largest, most complicated project ODOT has completed to date. The bridge is a landmark for Northwest Ohio.
The Veterans' Glass City Skyway features the world's first bridge pylon to include glass panels.
