New Division Street bridge opens today

Staff report


The new Division Street bridge over the Mahoning River that connects Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to the Ohio Works Industrial Park and Salt Springs Road opened today.

The three-span concrete slab bridge, supported by steel beams, replaced a narrower single-span, 1939-vintage steel truss bridge that closed in February and was demolished because it was rated as structurally deficient and functionally obsolete.
