Engineers from the Ohio Department of Transportation will speak to the public about the three-year rehabilitation project scheduled for the Anthony Wayne Bridge (High Level Bridge) Thursday, April 25.

The talk, sponsored by the East Toledo Club, will be held at 12:30 p.m. at the East Toledo Senior Activities Center, 1001 White St. A question and answer period will follow.

The historic bridge, which was built in 1931, is expected to be closed for two construction seasons, beginning either this year or in 2014, according to an ODOT spokesperson. When it reopens, there will be lane restrictions for one season to allow for painting.


A timeline for the project is expected to be released sometime this month

The public is encouraged to attend. A lunch will be served at Noon. Cost is $6 for East Toledo Club members and $8 non-members. RSVP to 419-691-2254.
