The contract for the construction of the 2.1 kilometer Oweto Bridge is handled by the Reynolds Construction Company on 30th November, 2011 to link Benue and Nasarawa States across River Benue
The Oweto Bridge and the Second Niger Bridge are the two largest bridges carried out by the Federal Government Of Nigeria since the construction of the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos twenty-five years ago. The project is going to enhance the travelling time between the northern side of the country and the southern side of the country through this joining. Upon completion of the bridge, it will help in reducing the level of traffic we are witnessing in the state.
