Work will begin Sept. 4 on two Milan bridges.
Both bridges to be replaced are on U.S. 250 at the northern edge of Milan. The first is a 198-foot bridge over the Huron River; the second, a 257-foot bridge over abandoned railroad tracks, said ODOT spokesman Brian Stacy.
Motorists will start to see construction signs as early as next week.
"The work that we're doing this fall is to get ready for the major construction work next year," Stacy said.
The bulk of the work will be done during 2008 with a scheduled completion date of May 2009.
