Breese Rd. Bridge construction underway

LIMA — Allen County Commissioners have approved a change in infrastructure to the Breese Rd. bridge in Shawnee, located above the Ottawa River.

Allen County Deputy Engineer Ronald Meyer said the department plans to clean up the bridge and create a new concrete deck.

The changes to the bridge will improve longevity and sustainability over time.

Construction of the bridge will begin within the month and should last around 6 weeks. The hope is to complete the project before school begins in the fall.
