INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The next major project for Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard’s RebuildIndy is set to start Tuesday morning.
The next phase of RebuildIndy is Phase 1 of the Eagle Creek Greenway Extension project, on the west side.
City officials want to make the Eagle Creek Greenway go from West 46th Street to south of downtown. The goal is to make the greenway area similar to the Monon Trail on the north side and furthering the connectivity between all parts of the city.
The Indianapolis Department of Public Works is investing nearly $15 million in the project. RebuildIndy is investing nearly $126 million in the city’s infrastructure in 2015.
Currently, two sections of the greenway have been finished — the first at the south end along Raymond Street and the second on the north end near the Pike Youth Soccer Complex.
Once the rest of the trail is finished, the greenway will be more than 16 miles long and have major access points at Eagle Creek, Thatcher, Ridenour and Ross-Claypool parks.
