On Tuesday, November 20th, two skilled crane operators and a support crew placed the refurbished Valley View Road truss bridge across Indian Creek, connecting the existing Hayswood section of Indian Creek Trail with the newly-constructed section that follows the creek behind the post office and ties into the Doolittle section by passing beneath the west bridge on IN-62. See the trail map for a visual aid. The Parks Department expects to have the trail complete and open before the end of 2018. Stay tuned for that announcement! Higher Eye Photography got some really nice aerial shots and a put together a time-lapse video of the process.
2018 is an exciting year. The trail underpass under Highway 62 is complete and the connection extends to the new bridge site. The new bridge is assembled on site and has been painted to match the existing bridge. The bridge setting date has not been determined but should be in a few weeks. The access ramps will be competed and then the long awaited and much anticipated grand opening!!!!
