TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Drivers who use the Craig Bridge over the Maumee River will have to find a new route beginning next week.
The Ohio Department of Transportation announced Monday that the bridge will close on Monday, January 6 at 7 a.m. for painting work. ODOT plans to have painting completed and reopen the bridge by March 15.
"In the winter when there's no ships coming through. There is that period of time we can close it. We thought we'd take advantage of that closing time and use it to paint while we can have it closed," said ODOT spokesperson Theresa Pollick.
Workers will paint the bridge's bascule spans using special warming tents. ODOT says another reason to close the bridge now is to have it back open before the Anthony Wayne Bridge closes sometime near the end of 2014.
In total, the project will cost about $11.2 million.
