I reported on the 62nd street multi-use path plans nearly a year and a half ago and I am happy to report that real earth is now being turned towards the realization of the planning. Tree removal along 62nd street has been occurring for a few weeks now. Last week, median reconfiguration began and finished. This week, pavement along the south side of 62nd street and adjacent to the Glendale Shopping Center is being removed.
With the removal of pavement, one of the most significant portions of this trail, in my opinion, is now taking place; that being the full removal of one automobile travel lane which will be replaced with the cycling trail that will travel adjacent to the shopping center.
Urban Indy will continue to provide updates as this project progresses throughout the summer construction season. On national bike to work day, it seems fitting to report on another significant Indianapolis cycling project.
