NEW HARMONY, IN (WFIE) -
New Harmony's Bridge is still closed and officials aren't sure if it will ever reopen.
At a public hearing on Monday, the community learned about what steps are being taken to prepare for the uncertain future.
New Harmony's gas line is actually attached to the bridge and with all the uncertainty surrounding its fate, the Town Council says it's time to relocate it.
Everyone has their opinion, but no one really knows what's going to happen.
"It will probably sit there closed up until I die," New Harmony resident, Tom Cochran said. "It's always in the back of your mind.
"Well, there's been so many rumors for so long," Thomas Stone said.
Stone hears those rumors because he lives right next to the bridge.
"To be honest with you, it's been a whole lot quieter here because the vast majority of that traffic that came over the bridge are grain trucks," Stone said.
It's been quiet over at Pop's Grill, too. The owners tell 14 News they've lost about 20 percent of their business.
"Everybody talks about the bridge, especially people who don't have GPS because the bridge doesn't show closed," Pop's owner, Harry Hottel said.
"We need to be looking into because we don't know where the bridge is going," Town Council President, Joe Straw told 14 News.
That uncertainty has town council in talks to relocate the gas line that's on the bridge.
"Maybe putting the line under the river, maybe going elsewhere to see if we can connect onto Texas Eastern's line," Straw said.
Straw says they've applied for $30,000 in state grant funds. But as to just how much the project could cost, it's still too early to tell.
"We'll have to get creative with that," Straw said.
The town could get the grant funding as early as April, but it'll be early next year before any construction gets underway.
