DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) — Improvements in safety are still underway two years after the bodies Liberty German and Abigail Williams were found on one of Delphi's Historic Trails.

The trails have seen major upgrades including markers that let someone know which trail they are on and how many miles they've traveled.

There are also informational kiosks with built-in recording systems and cameras. Chairman of Delphi's Historic Trails Dan McCain said additional safety features are still in the works, but seeing cameras along every trail isn't likely.

"I don't know if people would even want to walk where there are cameras on them all the time, but we do want to catch vehicles coming and going and get an idea on how many people are on the trails as well, so we can do that from the entry points," said McCain.

He added although every trail isn't lined with cameras, the ones at the entry points still pick up quite a bit. 

"The recorder would be enough megs of space in there to store about three months for most of the camera systems," said Dan McCain. 

A project McCain said wouldn't be possible without the community. "We were very successful because people poured out their hearts."

You may have noticed the Monon High Bridge has been blocked off for a while now. McCain said it's the latest to receive upgrades that include new decking and railing.
