Evansville’s Mayor Winnecke to Officially Open the Pigeon Creek Greenway Passage

Mayor Lloyd Winnecke will host a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Wednesday, Dec. 12, at 3pm at the corner of Grove and Louisiana streets. The ceremony will officially mark the completion of the 3.5 miles of the Industrial Corridor linking the Riverfront Corridor with the Mid Levee Corridor from Sunrise Park to the Heidelbach Canoe Launch for total of 6.75 miles.

“Completion of the Industrial Corridor has been a goal for over a decade,” said Mayor Lloyd Winnecke. “The Greenway Passage is a wonderful contribution to the Department of Parks & Recreation. The trail provides a beautiful corridor for users to walk, jog or ride their bikes from the Downtown to the near North Side.”

Construction on Phase 4 started in April 2012. The total cost of Phase 4 is nearly $1.4 million, with more than $1 million from Surface Transportation Program (STP) funds and $311,636 in Riverboat funds.

Design work is underway to extend future construction of the Greenway Passage through the Arts District to the Glenwood Learning Academy/Hi Rail Corridor, and up the future Garvin/Governor bike lanes to Stringtown, connecting back to the Mid Levee Corridor, for an inner-city loop of 14 miles. Additional design work is being done on the route east on Riverside/Pollack and on Covert Avenue to connect with the Angel Mounds State Historic Site and the Town of Newburgh.
