Sections of the curb on the 4th Street bridge resemble a crumb cake. Flakes of concrete litter the road, and rusted rebar is exposed in places along the curb.
About 19,110 cars use the bridge each day, according to a 2006 count by the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission. Commuters heading north out of Downtown crowd the bridge each evening.
The Ohio Department of Transportation has scheduled the bridge’s deck for rehab in 2011. The project, expected to cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, will include replacing the sidewalks and curbs.
