Most construction on the trail appears to be complete, so it’s a good time for a follow up post. See earlier posts on the construction by Curt Ailes here.
I like the signage, and blue color theme to contrast with the red color of the Monon Trail:
Nice bioswale here:
Not sure why the benches face the parking lot instead of the creek:
Both of the parking lots feature a bit more asphalt than I would like to see. I’m not sure if the turnaround is needed here, and the other lot has a separate exit and entrance. By the way, pulling out of this lot onto Fall Creek Parkway feels very dangerous:
The 30th Street Underpass:
The crosswalk across College is not very well marked yet, and I hope this remains to be upgraded:
After leaving the portion of the trail near College Avenue, I was curious to see the place where the trail intersected with the Monon Trail. I was surprised see that there was not a sign along the Monon for the Fall Creek Trail, as the part to the north has been constructed for years:
Monon Bridge Underpass. I love the Monon Bridges, so I had to get a shot of this:
The neighborhood to the north of Fall Creek has a ton of old apartment buildings in various stages of repair. Here’s a remodeled complex, just in front of a long-abandoned building:
I hope the Fall Creek Trail can lead to more investment along the parkway, and I’m happy to see this connection exists between the Monon and Fall Creek Place. I believe a weekend bike ride to Goose The Market will soon be in order.
