Beams for a bridge structure on new U.S. 24 near Defiance began setting in place Feb. 24. Work was expected to cause short-term traffic delays over a two week period, said Tim Burkepile, Ohio Department of Transportation District 1 deputy director.

Crews will be working on the structure which will carry U.S. 24 over the CSX railroad and over Baltimore Street (formerly Ohio 424) at the west edge of Defiance.

Work began first over the section which spans the railroad. The beams were set on this section on Feb. 23 and 24. One-lane traffic will be maintained through the area with flaggers.

Beams were also set in place for the section of the structure spanning Baltimore Street, which is currently serving as rerouted U.S. 24 during construction of a new interchange.

Work on the interchange will be completed late this year when four-lane U.S. 24 from the Indiana line to Defiance is expected to open to traffic.
