Freighter Passing Under the Anthony Wayne Bridge
The Anthony Wayne Bridge, known locally as the “High Level Bridge” was originally built in 1931 and got its nickname because it was the first bridge in Toledo that was high enough for lake freighters and other vessels to pass under without needing a drawbridge or a swing bridge. In 2012, the City of Toledo and the Ohio Department of Transportation announced a redevelopment project for the bridge to keep it functioning into the future.
