VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A plan to connect Terre Haute and West Terre Haute is still pushing forward.

We first told you about the project in March of 2018. It's a one mile concrete boardwalk that'll be built on the south side of US 150.

It's an $8.7 million dollar project, where the Indiana Department of Transportation will foot most of the bill.

News 10 reached out to County Commissioners for an update. They say the project is still chugging along, even though ground hasn't been broken yet.

Commissioner Judy Anderson says right now there are many engineering and environmental steps being taken. Anderson says once in place, the walkway will be a huge asset.

She explains, "It's going to be a safety issue that is going to be addressed that has been long time coming. Long time coming. There has been so many issues along that grade between Terre Haute to West Terre Haute that, like I said, it's just going to be a real big safety issue."

Anderson says the county has paid its first portion of the match.

Commissioner President Brad Anderson says bidding on the project should start in November.
