Construction starts on new gateway for downtown Toledo

Construction starts on new gateway for downtown Toledo

A long-awaited construction project set to begin on the edge of downtown Toledo.

The city calls The Anthony Wayne Trail Gateway a "new front door into the heart of Toledo." The $4.4 million project broke ground Tuesday.

City officials say it will improve access for pedestrians and motorists. The construction will also take care of deteriorating pavement.

"We can make it safer, we can make it look nicer, we can implement the Toledo 20/20 Comprehensive Plan," said Planning Administrator Dave Dysard. "But the most important thing is that plan said we have to clean up the image as you approach downtown, the gateway into downtown."

It also incorporates space for public art including a brand new sculpture.
