Back in March we reported that construction was underway on the Fall Creek Trail extension from the intersection of the Monon Trail, southward. I am happy to bring to you some updated photos from those efforts. The photos for this post were taken where the trail will intersect at the Monon Trail. Next time, I will highlight efforts further south of here.
As you can see from the photos, the trail will pass underneath of the large red bridge and meet the existing Fall Creek Trail near where the ramp up to the Monon begins. This will provide a seamless link for users travelling from points north on the Fall Creek Trail, but will require a bit of a hairpin turn for Monon Trail users. That should not serve as a barrier to usage however.
With a completion date scheduled for January sometime (but a goal of November), it looks like the contractor is well on their way to meeting that timeline. We will bring you an update with photos further south next time.
