Brecksville-Northfield High Level Bridge

The Brecksville-Northfield High Level Bridge is a five-span open-spandrel arch bridge that carries OH 82 over the Cuyahoga River and valley in Cuyahoga and Summit counties, Ohio.

The two-lane crossing was designed by county engineer A.M. Felgate 5 and constructed in 1930-31 by the Highway Construction Company under the supervision of Felgate. It was rehabilitated in 1989.

In 2012, five men were arrested and accused of planning to blow up the bridge. 1 The five were accused of planting what they thought were explosives and attempting to detonate it with a cell phone. 1 Following guilty pleas and one conviction, the men were sentenced between November 2012 and October 2013. 2 3
