East Water Bridge CLOSED!

At Tuesday’s “Committee of the Whole ” Village Council meeting, it was announced the Bridge on East Water Street in North Baltimore is CLOSED indefinitely.

Village Administrator Chase Fletcher shared that he had been at the site of the bridge earlier today with representatives of Mannick and Smith, construction engineering consultants,  and ODOT, examining it. After looking at the underside surface, both of them recommended “immediate closing” due to safety concerns.

The Village was the recent recipient of ODOT grant funding from a federal government Bridge Project, which is scheduled to pay for 95% of the cost to replace this bridge. However, the project is not slated to begin until 2024-2025. Stay tuned for further updates, as they develop.

  1. They replaced the bridge over route 6 in a weekend so how long are the powers that be going to milk this out! Still getting my tax dollars every week!

  2. This is ridiculous nobody gets a notice and it’s shut down for 3 years that doesn’t make any sense how does it take 3 years to build a bridge

    1. “Chelsie” (LAST NAME Please!)- Please read the article it is briefly explained. The closure was “ordered” yesterday. This bridge has been “in process” for some time, the “government”, local, county, state and federal, they ALL led to this delay.

  3. J.P., can u give us a reminder of when the bridge was built? I know it was built sometime when I was in high school I believe. I hope the next one last longer. Like they say- they don’t build them like they used to…
