Our good friend Iamhoosier owns a calculator (so do I) and he knows how to use it (I don't); he reports that it comes out to $1,150.00 per foot of path. Granting that the Indiana ramp is an expensive proposition, I wonder how much this math applies to what it would cost to work similar wonders on the K & I -- that is, after we nationalize the railroad.
Big Four Bridge set for completion, by Philip Bailey (LEO)
In a project that officials say will further unite the region, the governors of Kentucky and Indiana announced that along with the city of Jeffersonville, the two states will allocate $22 million to complete the Big Four Bridge pedestrian and bicycle pathway to link Louisville and Southern Indiana.
The agreement will turn the unused and rusting span into a new bridge that will connect Louisville’s Waterfront Park to downtown Jeffersonville. The historic bridge was built for railroad traffic in 1895, but has been closed with its approaches removed since 1969.
