A Span Is Born

A new bridge over the Maumee River in Napoleon will be opened following a public ceremony at 10 a.m. on Nov. 9. Ohio Department of Transportation, District 2 Deputy Director, Pat McColley, Henry County Engineer Tim Schumm and the Henry County Commissioners will lead the event that will be held on the southern portion of the bridge. People may park along both sides of the future Industrial Drive, extending north from the roundabout on Ohio 110, near the Campbell Soup Company. The winning name for the bridge, chosen during a social media campaign this summer, will be revealed during the ceremony. Members of the River City Rodders, a car club based in Napoleon, will be the first to drive across the bridge after the ribbon is cut. The bridge is expected to be fully opened to traffic within a short time following the ceremony. The $10.3 million project began in February 2020. Finish work to complete the project will continue through June 2022.
