One Section Of Ford Street Opens To Traffic At The Anthony Wayne Trail As Another Section Closes

The section of Ford Street located south of the Anthony Wayne Trail that was under construction for the first 25 days of April has officially reopened as of Friday, April 26, allowing vehicular access to and from the Anthony Wayne Trail. The work on this section of Ford Street was completed just in time for Saturday morning’s Maumee Little League Opening Day ceremonies which are scheduled at Robert S. Hoag Field in Ford Park. The bad news is that the portion of Ford Street north of the Anthony Wayne Trail is now closed for the second phase of the Ford Street project, which is expected to continue through May 24.

This photo shows traffic flowing north on Ford Street toward the Anthony Wayne Trail. This section of the road is now open for public use, following a 25-day construction project that improved the road’s safe access to the Anthony Wayne Trail.
The bad news for motorist is that the section of Ford Street north of the Anthony Wayne Trail is now blockaded as of Friday, April 26, for a construction project that is expected to begin next Monday morning and should continue through May 24. New curbs and asphalt will be installed on this section of Ford Street during that period with the goal of improving traffic safety at this intersection. ODOT is coordinating and supervising the Maumee project.
The heavy equipment and traffic barriers are already in place for construction to begin on Monday on the portion of Ford Street that is located north of the Anthony Wayne Trail.
Final touches at the Ford Park parking lot were taking place on Friday in preparation for the Maumee Little League Opening Day ceremonies which are schedule to take place at Robert S. Hoag Field following the five-block player parade along West John Street. The parade steps off at 10:00 a.m. and the field ceremonies are expected to take place at approximately 11:00 a.m.
