The Ohio Department of Transportation District 2 announces that the Anthony Wayne Bridge is scheduled to close March 17 at 7 a.m. 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 that connects downtown Toledo with the east side. ODOT awarded the $28.7 million project to the E.S. Wagner Company in Oregon.

Work includes re-decking 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 with a project completion date slated for December 2015, weather permitting.

Trees, parks and the municipal pool are three areas to be discussed in the coming months by members of the parks, recreation and community events committee of Walbridge Village Council, says Sue Hart-Douglas, who chairs the committee.

One goal Hart-Douglas has set for the village this year is to see it enrolled in the Tree City USA program of The Arbor Day Foundation.

She said the tree program was on the agenda of last week’s committee meeting and the village needs to complete a multi-step process to attain the designation.

Oregon street crews are using Google Earth on their smart phones to find catch basins to clear away snow and ice to lower the risk of flooding.

The software provides data, such as detailed, highlighted maps of cities and streets throughout the world. 

Public Service Director Paul Roman told council last week the city received about 1.7 inches of rain the previous week, which caused some local flooding.
