Council backs new Ford Road bridge plan

Boone County — Sometime Tuesday, Indiana Department of Transportation officials will decide whether Boone County is going to lose $2.5 million in federal help to construct a new Ford Road bridge over Eagle Creek.

The existing bridge was built in the late 1920s and is literally crumbling into the stream.

Next Tuesday, INDOT officials will review a list of stalled projects, including the Ford Road bridge proposal, to decide which ones will lose federal funding. The bridge replacement project was awarded federal money in 1995 — but soon became controversial, with various groups backing the steel structure and others demanding a modern bridge.
