Veterans Memorial Bridge will be open to the public for fun and exploration this summer. The free, self-guided tours will take place on Friday, June 21, from 4-11 p.m., and Saturday, June 22, from noon-11 p.m. Visitors can enjoy the original streetcar station and tracks while taking in views of the Cuyahoga River, Lake Erie and downtown Cleveland.
