Veterans Glass City Skyway Opens

La Prensa Staff

Thousands of Toledo residents joined elected officials and a host of dignitaries last Saturday in celebrations to open up what will become the defining symbol of the Glass City over the next few decades – the Veterans Glass City Skyway.

One of only a handful of suspensions bridges of its type in the world, the $237 million Skyway has the singular distinction of being made of a structural glass – symbolic of its location – that can light up in a variety of ways.

Some 65 buses carried visitors around the structure on Saturday to enable them to witness a once-in-a-lifetime event.

“We are here to celebrate something that is the culmination of intelligence, commitment, investment and hard work,” said Governor Ted Strickland in his remarks at an earlier breakfast at the Marina District.

Dedication ceremonies began at 10:30 a.m. on the Skyway and a motorized parade of veterans’ groups began at noon.

The bridge was opened to vehicle traffic on Sunday morning.
