EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – The ribbon is cut at the Heidelbach Canoe Launch that marked the opening of the Mid Levee Corridor Greenway.
The corridor is about four-tenths of a mile, stretching from the Canoe Launch to Stringtown Rd.
It’s part of the City of Evansville’s non-motorized transportation network designed to enhance recreation opportunities and make the city more walkable and bicycle-friendly.
Mayor Winnecke cut the ribbon Wednesday morning.
Winnecke said one word they hear a lot is connectivity. He said, “When listening to residents, one word we often hear is connectivity. This corridor is another great step toward connecting our city.”
The Mid Levee Corridor Greenway is a $1.1 million federally funded matching grant project, with the federal government paying for 80% of the cost.
