Ford: INDOT, Vigo County Officials Announce Terre Haute-West Terre Haute Connector

STATEHOUSE (March 2, 2018) – Today, representatives from Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) and Vigo County announced a new multi-use pathway to be constructed to connect West Terre Haute and Terre Haute, said State Sen. Jon Ford (R-Terre Haute).

The 1.17-mile concrete pathway will be constructed on the south side of U.S. 150 behind the existing INDOT guardrail.

INDOT will provide $7 million toward the project, with Vigo County committing $1.74 million.

“This walkway will do more than connect West Terre Haute and Terre Haute, as it will provide an easy way for residents to travel between these areas, bringing the two communities together,” Ford said. “I want to thank INDOT Commissioner Joe McGuinness and Regional Deputy Commissioner Shane Spears for focusing on this project, which will benefit the quality of life for those in the Terre Haute area.”

INDOT is sponsoring this project in partnership with Vigo County and the West Central Indiana Economic Development District/Metropolitan Planning Organization.

Supporters of this project include the City of Terre Haute, the Town of West Terre Haute and Wabash Valley Riverscape.
