Monon Trail users should be able to cross 146th Street next year without stopping for traffic.

The Hamilton County Highway Dept. has approved final designs for a pedestrian bridge to cross 146th Street at Rohrer Road. Work for the more than $3.3 million project is expected to begin in the spring, after work is completed on the 146th Street bridge over U.S. 31.

According to the HCHD’s website, the project is expected to be completed in summer 2012 with federal aid covering approximately 80 percent of the utility relocation, construction, and construction inspection costs.  The remaining 20 percent and all of the design costs will be locally funded.
