DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — After more than a year, the Webster Street Bridge will reopen.
The bridge has been closed since January of 2016, while crews completed an $11 million replacement project. The bridge was nearly 100 years old, before being demolished last year.
On Thursday, at 6 p.m., the bridge reopens to car and foot traffic.
Some of the changes people can expect includes:
- 5 traffic lanes
- wider sidewalks
- enhanced lighting
- observation decks
