The East Fork Halls Creek Bridge, affectionately known as the “Bridge by the Dam,” has been a vital passage for locals for decades. This iconic wooden structure, however, is set to undergo a transformation in the summer of 2025. The town is gearing up for a significant construction project that will replace the aging wooden bridge with a modern, wider, and more durable concrete structure.

Notable to this project are:

  • Widening the bridge from its current 16.8 feet to a more accommodating 24 feet.
  • Increase length of the bridge from 26.8 feet to approximately 36-40 feet.
  • Replace the wooden structure with concrete
  • Estimated cost is $450,000.00
  • 80% of cost from federal funding
  • 20% funded by Town of Mentor and WDOT
  • Slated to start in the summer of 2025
  • Road closures will be announced prior to starting the project
