WOOD COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Two Wood County bridges are set to be replaced soon: one at Pursell and Stearns roads in Perry Township, the other on Pemberville Road in Troy Township.
The county received a grant from the Ohio Public Works Commission that will help fund the projects, which are expected to cost a little under $1 million altogether. The grant will cover about half that cost.
Both bridges were built in the 1930s, so they are old and deteriorating – and a safety hazard to drivers. An annual inspection by the federal and state governments rated both bridges a 3 out of 10 in terms of condition.
"They'll be completely removed," Wood County Engineer Raymond Huber said. "The foundation system, the super structure…which is the bridge deck, the driving surface area, will be completely replaced and new foundation systems and a new deck will be put up. They will be wider in width and longer in span to accommodate the water that has to pass under them."
Huber said both bridges see a high volume of traffic, and the concrete is currently unable to hold a lot of weight.
He expects construction of both bridges to be complete by this summer.
