Tecumseh bridge to get barrier

The Tecumseh Street Bridge will get additional protection.

The Allen County Commissioners voted unanimously Friday to pay Engineering Resources $120,000 to design new barriers for the bridge over the Maumee River. Though the bridge has eight-inch curbs, vehicles have repeatedly jumped the curbs and struck the limestone railings.

County Highway Director Bill Hartman said Engineering Resources will design a barrier that will line the curbs to stop vehicles before they hit the railings.

The Commissioners also approved a $100,000 agreement with Fort Wayne Trails for the extension of the Pufferbelly Trail north of Dupont Road.
