CLARKSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - A groundbreaking for the final stretch of southern Indiana’s Ohio River Greenway is set to bring that trail closer to completion following decades of planning.

Friday’s ceremony in Clarksville will toast the start of work on the 1.3-mile Lewis and Clark Trail. It will run between Clarksville and New Albany and include construction of a bridge over Silver Creek, an Ohio River tributary.

The Ohio River Greenway Commission calls the start of work on the trail “a major milestone” in efforts by local communities and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to give the public riverfront access.

The News and Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2mNRCVu ) the new trail will become the final link in the nearly eight-mile multi-use riverfront greenway that when complete will run between New Albany and Jeffersonville.
