The bridge remains owned by Ohio DOT District 5, I would encourage you to write them and express support for this bridge to be opened. The bridge is in decent condition.
Ohio has rail trails. The Hudson River rail bridge at Poughkeepsie NY is a walkway “park”. On this website there is a landscape area presumably a park. Why cannot Dresden incorporate their abandoned piece of history into a footbridge instead of letting it deteriorate into scrap steel. C’mon people. Ohio is full of history.
