Community collaboration leads to successful restoration of Nowland Avenue Bridge

Indianapolis, Indiana – Over five years after initiating a fundraising campaign for a restoration project, the historic Nowland Avenue Bridge in Spades Park has finally reopened to the public.

On Sunday, individuals crossed the bridge for the first time since its restoration.

In the summer of 2017, a group of near east side neighbors recognized the need to repair the bridge, which serves as the main connector between Spades and Brookside parks and forms a part of the proposed Pogue’s Run Trail.

The group has now identified another bridge for their upcoming fundraising efforts.

Laurie Klinger, one of the organizers, shared, “There’s another bridge in Brookside Park, it’s not slated anytime soon with the city for repair, and it’s right next to where the Pogue’s Run Trail will go, so that’s our next goal is to try to get started on getting it repaired.”

The organizers expressed their gratitude to the hundreds of people and businesses that contributed to making the restoration project a reality.
