I walked across the bridge last Friday afternoon.

The only negative was there was no HC elevator. The ramp was nice and I could handle walking up it, but wonder about people who are fat and out-of-shape, not to mention folks with disabilities.

Other than that it was nice. Nice that they had the music over the PA system about midway across, too. Especially nice to see all the people on the bridge...almost like in Europe where people are out for their promenade or stroll in some city park or walking path.

The Jeff side is going to be nice. Jeff looks great from up on the bridge, in fact being up there looking at the rootops, steeples, etc popping up out of the trees makes you want to go down there.

Also, looking down from the edge brought back memories. Don't know how old you all are or how much you remember but I am old enough to remember the original bridge approach from Jeff...the high black steel girders and trusses maching up over that little neighborhood, waaay up there. This would have been in 1971 or 1972 before they tore down the approaches.

Anyway....very much looking forward to the Indiana access being finished. Jeff is deffo going to get a lot more visitors when that opens...certainly I will visit!

Excellent observations and I concur.

Happy to report that I hiked the bridge yesterday and only spotted one small dog turd. I think the message is getting through.
