WTOL RIVER RUN 10K FEATURES SCENIC RIVER CROSSING ON TOLEDO’S HISTORIC HIGH LEVEL BRIDGE

A unique feature of the WTOL River Run 10k road race is a river crossing via the historic High Level Bridge in downtown Toledo. The Anthony Wayne Bridge, commonly called simply the High Level Bridge, is Toledo’s only historic high level bridge, and it is a defining landmark for the city. Toledo has other Maumee River crossings, some of which are historic, but they are low level crossings with movable spans to provide for navigation.

This impressive bridge was constructed in 1931. It features an attractive tower design. The towers feature various lattice patterns, and some of the structural steel on them is itself latticed. The top and bottom horizontal portions of the tower bracing above the roadway have a slight arch to them. The towers do not have the extremely tall feeling that some suspension bridges have, because of a medium span length coupled with a wide four-lane roadway on this bridge create the illusion of shorter towers.

The bridge contains a traditional design of three suspended spans; one between towers, and one at each end next to the towers. The suspender cables for this bridge extend down from the main cable in pairs. Stiffening for the deck of the Anthony Wayne bridge is accomplished via a through-plate girder design. The bridge features a Warren deck truss approach span that is located next to each of the end suspended spans. These approach truss spans feature riveted connections, and v-lacing/lattice. Original decorative sidewalk railings are present on the bridge.
