Anthony Wayne Bridge Project
BOWLING GREEN (Monday, February 24, 2014) – The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District Two announces that the Anthony Wayne Bridge is scheduled to close on Monday, March 17 at 7am. The bridge will be closed to both vehicles and pedestrian traffic through September 2015.
Built in 1931, the Anthony Wayne Bridge is a nationally recognized historical bridge in downtown Toledo, Ohio. ODOT awarded the $28.7 million project to the E.S. Wagner Company of Oregon.
Work includes redecking the bridge, replacing the existing truss end spans, rehabilitation of the existing substructures, new street lighting and rebuilding the sidewalks, railings and fence. Following the closure, lane restrictions will be put in place for an additional construction season for painting.
ODOT will be holding an informational meeting regarding the project and closure. Details on a date, location and time will be announced. If you would like register for email updates for this project, use the form below. ODOT will also post updates on Facebook and Twitter.
