Skyway bridge ice sensors can keep motorists safe
Better detection of ice formations on the Veterans’ Glass City Skyway’s pylons can alert state officials to conditions that make the ice a hazard to traffic on the bridge, according to a state-commissioned study. Twice during each of its first two winters of service, then again in February, 2011, closings have been ordered on the cable-stayed I-280 bridge over the Maumee River because of ice chunks falling from its stays, central pylon, or both after winter storms.
