I unfortunately cannot post the documents I referred to since they are not released to the public. I did however review preliminary plan sheets as well as a truss span replacement document that discussed the consideration of alternatives that resulted in a replacement plan for those spans. Unless the final plans for the project are revised, these alterations will be applied to the bridge.
Could you provide some information on that one? I find this hard to believe that ODOT wants to pervert the bridge into something similar to the Paseo Bridge! I just don't believe it, sorry!
I like to refer to that as "Selective Rehabilitation".
This bridge is slated for "rehabilitation." I put rehabilitation in quotes because it includes the complete demolition and replacement of the two large deck truss spans that flank the suspension span. It also includes the removal of attractive v-lacing and lattice from the suspension towers and replacement with perforated cover plate (like 1960s truss bridges have)
This Bridge is one of the few Jewels That Toledo has. One morning on the way to work I was driving down Miami St.It was the month of April and extremly foggy. With the Bridge in the fog it looked as if I were in San Francisco. That bridge has been around for decades and is a jewel to the toledo skyline, and When the new skyway bridge down the river several miles is done, Toledo will look even better.
