… New Bike/Hike Path Opened Under Bridge
On November 10, ODOT formally opened the completed multi-use path under the old Craig Bridge. The path is one of the last pieces of the project that built the Veterans’ Glass City Skyway on I-280, reconnected city streets in North Toledo, and converted the Craig Bridge to a local roadway.
The new 2.2-mile segment connects with an older path on the Green Belt Parkway, goes under the new bridge, then crosses the river on the Craig Bridge, and connects with another existing path on the East Side near the marina district. The area is landscaped and planted and intersections of the path and the road are completed with signs and traffic signals.
Ed O’Reilly, chair of TMACOG’s Pedestrian & Bikeways Committee, describes the new route to a reporter.
