VANDERBURGH CO., Ind. (WFIE) - Vanderburgh County leaders broke ground on the new Green River Road Trail Project on Friday.

The county was awarded over $770,000 by the “Indiana Department of Natural Resources Next Level Trails Program.”

It’s a part of Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb’s $1 billion infrastructure program.

The Green River Road Trail Project is set to add over two miles of walking space along Green River Road from Lenape Lane to Millersburg Road. It will connect the Green River Road Canoe Launch, Goebel Soccer Complex and Deaconess Sports Park.

Vanderburgh County Commissioner Ben Shoulders says the impact of this project will reach the entire city.

“This project, for those of you who don’t know, will not only improve transportation and safety, but also enhance accessibility and connectivity,” he said.

According to Shoulders, county leaders hope to have the project completed by summer 2023.
