Construction to Begin on Shipyard Connector
Construction of the Gary Shell Cross-City Trail Phase III-D began in December 2012 and was completed in April, 2013.
About the Project:
This project connected the existing portions of the Gary Shell Cross-City Trail on Independence Boulevard. The 2,300 asphalt path connection parallels Independence Boulevard between Ashton Drive and Converse Drive. Additionally, pedestrian signal amenities were added to the existing signal at the Independence Boulevard/Shipyard intersection.
Public open houses were held on Monday, April 4, 2011 and May 5, 2011 to discuss options for the Shipyard Blvd. Connector piece of the trail. The recommended alignment reflects input provided by the public.
