A grassroots movement is gaining momentum in Posey and White counties on Wednesday night to get the New Harmony Bridge back open for business between Indiana and Illinois.
"You take a lot of responsibility and a lot of responsibility for a lot of money when you do that, but since the fertilizer plant has come in and we're going to see some tremendous improvements all the way around, what better time than now to bring New Harmony into it," Walden says.
"We can do all the talking that we want to about this subject, but until that private entity is transferred into public entity, we can't get anything done," group organizer, Bill Wilson says.
Walden told the group he would vote for the county to take ownership of the bridge if it came before the commission.
Members of the group say they're organizing a petition drive and will work closely with local governments.
Their next public meeting is set for July 24.
