DEFIANCE, Ohio (WFFT) - It's now harder to get around Defiance because of road construction.

The Clinton Street bridge over the Maumee River is closed for the next nine months.

This is so the Ohio Department of Transportation can replace the bridge.

The new bridge will be more pedestrian friendly once it is opened.

Until then, people can cross the Maumee at US 24 or State Route 281.
