Trail getting pedestrian bridge near state fairgrounds

By The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS — Construction is underway on a new pedestrian bridge for the Monon Trail over a busy Indianapolis street near the Indiana State Fairgrounds.

City officials planned to close all lanes of 38th Street at the trail’s crossing over the weekend for construction crews.

The raised, five-span bridge will cost $5.6 million and is scheduled for completion by July 2021. It will carry the Monon Trail over 38th Street and eliminate the on-street crossing, The Indianapolis Star reported.

The popular recreation trail stretches from near downtown Indianapolis north to Carmel, Westfield and Sheridan in Hamilton County.
