VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Vigo County and state leaders are very excited about a new walkway connecting Terre Haute and West Terre Haute.


On Friday, representatives from the Indiana Department of Transportation and Vigo County announced a new multi-use pathway.

The 1.17 mile concrete pathway will be built on the south side of U.S. 150 behind the existing INDOT guardrail.

Vigo County Commissioners say it's a big deal for the community. It will be good for Riverfront Development.

But perhaps most of all it will be a safe place for people to walk or bike between the two communities.

"I see the folks walking across there...biking across there and always hoping and praying that no one gets ran over,” commented Bill Thomas, Vigo County Council.

The project is expected to cost nearly $8.8 million. INDOT will provide $7 million and Vigo County will kick in the rest.

Construction on the new pathway should begin this time next year.
