In 1993 the cornerstone was laid for a new bridge. The initiator of this project was Croatian President Franjo Tuđman. The new bridge was finished in 1995, in place of old bridge. The opening ceremony was on 10 June 1995, with president Tuđman in attendance.
From 1995 since 2009 bridge had a few names, for example Drava Bridge (Croatian: Dravski most) or Bilje Bridge (Croatian: Biljski most). In 2009, by decision of the leaderships of Osijek and Osijek-Baranja County, the bridge was renamed Franjo Tuđman Bridge. In 2012 bridge was renovated.
