In a video posted to ODOTs twitter page, the agency showed patriotic-color lights on the George V. Voinovich Bridge in Cleveland, the Veterans Glass City Skyway in Toledo, the Ashtabula Harbor Bridge in Ashtabula and the I-75 bridge over Third Street in Dayton.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine retweeted the video, saying that ODOT was also lighting the bridges in response to the state government’s request for Ohioans to fly their flags.
