CARMEL, Ind. (WISH) - "It's another great improvement to the Monon Trail," said Mayor Jim Brainard of Carmel.
On Friday, his city – along with Westfield – will dedicate the new bridge that takes the Monon over 146th Street.
Brainard said it's "an added safety feature" for trail users. They will no longer need to wait for the light to change before they cross at street level, as was the case before the bridge. Now, they can travel over the traffic on the busy Hamilton County road.
"We now have bridges or tunnels for every four lane road crossing from 146th to the south end of Carmel at 96th," Brainard told 24-Hour News 8.
Since this crossing represents a gateway to Westfield, the cities worked together on the bridge project.
"We do a lot of that on our border streets for the Monon Trail," Brainard said. "And the county as well. It makes a lot of sense to pool our funds and get something like that done."
The dedication ceremony is scheduled for 10 a.m. Friday.
