WATERVILLE - The Ohio Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting March 27 to present three alternatives for the Waterville Bridge replacement project on State Routes 64/65 in Lucas and Wood counties.
The meeting will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Waterville Primary School's Community Room, 457 Sycamore Lane, Waterville.
The three alternatives including a design for a bridge on the existing bridge's alignment, a bridge built on a parallel alignment, and a bridge built on an offset, said ODOT District 2 Spokesperson Theresa Pollick,
The project overall will include a wider bridge, installation of a roundabout at the SR 64/65 intersection, and necessary related work.
The replacement project, she said, came about because of the age of the bridge. "It's just at the end of its lifespan," she said.
The bridge was first built in 1904 and rehabilitated in 1948. It is one of only four truss bridges in the state and federal highway system in Ohio.
Following the meeting, ODOT will take public comments in writing. The comments may be dropped off at the meeting, emailed to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , or mailed to:
