The design process for the I-280/Maumee River Crossing project began in April of 1999.


The first task, and an area of intense public involvement, was the selection of a bridge type. In October of 1999, after nearly half a year of evaluation and public outreach, ODOT selected the cable-stayed bridge (pictured) as the bridge type that would span the Maumee River. The cable-stayed design was also the favorite of citizens who participated in public meetings.
