Following a groundbreaking on Friday, the Ridge Avenue Bridge over the Stillwater River in Dayton is set to close Tuesday, February 18, 2014 until September, 2015 for a complete rebuilding.
The current bridge, which connects Riverside Drive on the west side to Triangle and Deweese Parks on the east, was built in 1927 and still carries nearly 5,000 vehicles a day to and from residential neighborhoods and the nearby Boonshoft Museum. A contract was granted to Brumbaugh Construction of Arcanum on February 11.
