INDOT to Hold Public Hearing about Pedestrian Bridge Near Bosse High School

Hwy41 Pedestrian Bridge
Indiana Department of Transportation

The highway 41 and Washington Avenue intersection includes six lanes of highway traffic, turn lanes, and stoplights. It also includes one of the city’s busiest crosswalks. Much of that foot traffic comes from children walking to and from Bosse High School.

Since 2017 locals and city officials have been asking for a raised pedestrian bridge over the highway to make the walk or bike to school safer. Online petitions and even a call from the local NAACP urged officials to build the bridge

And in 2019 highway and local officials announced it would happen.

Construction has not started on the bridge but the department of transportation is moving forward by hosting a public hearing on June 29th at 4:30pm at Bosse High School.

The public can view plans and ask questions. The project was originally estimated to cost $5 million and there is no official word on when construction might begin.
