Annual inspection of bridges over 10 feet in span as required by ODOT to ensure safety for vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
Cleaning scuppers, expansion joints, and bearings, removing unwanted vegetation, applying protective coatings to bridges to extend life, and reducing repair costs.
Minor repairs that extend the life of the bridge 2 to 5 years.
A combination of capital improvement program dollars and grant funds to extend the life of bridges 25-75 years.
Guardrail Installation and Repair

Bridge maintenance is managed by Streets, Bridges, and Harbor.
Marengo Street Bridge
Marengo Street Bridge was closed to all vehicular traffic in May of 2016 due to structural failure. Originally constructed in 1915, the bridge is considered to be of historical value to the Wildwood Community. A $1.6 million dollar grant has been secured from the Ohio Department of Transportation for construction. The project is currently in its early design phase.Project Packet
