Freedom Bridge looks to bring tourists to Delphi

DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) – A bridge from in Freedom, Ind. will serve as the focal point of plans to bring attention to Delphi’s Main Street intersection with the addition of the Hoosier Heartland Corridor.

The Freedom Bridge will become a 300-foot pedestrian bridge spanning the Hoosier Heartland. It will be part of the Monon High Bridge Trail. The 1.5 mile trail will also include a new plaza with a visitors center on the east side of the bridge.

Wabash & Erie Canal Association president, Dan McCain, said these kind of attractions should boost tourism in Delphi, Ind.

“It’s very exciting. It’s like if you drive on any interstate highway or four-lane highway. You come to something as outstanding as this bridge is going to be, you will remember where Delphi is, just because you will say ‘Oh! That’s where that bridge is, that’s Delphi,'” said McCain.

The bridge is currently being re-assembled in Delphi and is expected to be finished later this summer.
