DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) - An iron bridge across the Wabash-Erie Canal in Delphi is nearing completion. The nearly 200 foot walking bridge will connect the north and south sides of Erie Canal Park.
It was donated to the park by the Putnam County Commissioners and the Indiana Department of Transportation.
It has taken a group of skilled volunteers 2 years to clean, repair and reassemble the bridge.
"The strength of our organization, that goes all the way back to 1971, was built around volunteerism. We've been able to maintain that all the way through to today. Because of that we are stronger. Our people are just giving it a heart and soul," said Wabash and Erie Canal Association President Dan McCain.
The bridge will be open by mid-October. Just in time for the Indiana Bicentennial Train which will bring more than 3-thousand people to Erie Canal Park.
A Lafayette man charged with multiple bank robberies in Tippecanoe and Clinton Counties pleads guilty to a series of bank robberies in Illinois.
The drop in temperatures brings the potential for health dangers, such as hypothermia and frost bite. The bitter temperatures can pose a threat for children, adults and pets.
As it stands Wednesday, there will be no FEMA aid for tornado survivors in Howard County.
