The Veterans' Glass City Skyway is a prominent addition to the Toledo skyline. The graphic above compares the size of the new bridge design with the existing Anthony Wayne Bridge and the Owens-Illinois building, the tallest building in downtown Toledo. Height measurements are from water level.
The Veterans’ Glass City Skyway Task Force conducted three months of public outreach to determine a theme for this signature project. On February 25, 2000, the Task Force recommended a Transportation theme for the main corridor of the project, an Industry/Glass theme for the main bridge span, and a Natural Resources theme for the land reuse areas. ODOT accepted the recommendation on March 4, 2000.
