INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A once dilapidated underpass is now a beautiful trail head for the Monon Trial and Indianapolis Cultural Trail on Wednesday.
The Payne Connect is named after Gail and Brian Payne, who provided the vision and leadership for the project.
Gail Payne said the $3 million project took a lot of work.
“I hope that when those 2,000 riders come through this particular place that they come through a gateway about innovation and are inspired with creativity,” she said.
Mayor Greg Ballard mentioned at the ceremony that the assessed property value along the trail has increased by $8 billion.
