HWC Engineering is working with several public, private, local and state partners, including the city of Muncie, Cardinal Greenways, INDOT and the Kitselman Pure Energy Park to complete three projects in Muncie.
The projects include the reconstruction of the East Jackson Street Bridge, the Kitselman Trailhead and the Kitselman Pure Energy Park. These projects will revitalize the former Indiana Steel and Wire and King Indiana Forge brownfield factory areas.
HWC is currently leading the design of the Kitselman Trailhead Project. The $13 million project was planned in partnership with Land Collective. The project will revitalize a brownfield site and surrounding area. The project has been divided into three construction phases.
- Phase I consists of the restoration and installation of the old Bridge 85 and temporary trail connections to Cardinal greenway.
- Phase II includes construction on the eastern side of the river and the former Indiana Steel and Wire employee parking lot, including a White River greenway trail connection. A large lawn area will also be constructed on the old parking lot.
- Phase III includes construction on the western side of the river, which includes areas of the former King Forge property. Large art sculptures will be implemented in this phase to act as gateways to the city.
Major construction of the trailhead area will begin this summer and continue for several years. Click here to read the full article in the Muncie Journal.
