The new Cline Avenue Bridge can legally move forward now, according to a release from United Bridge Partners.
All the legal documents for the new bridge, which will replace the portion that has been shut down for several years and is being demolished, have been signed. This clears the way for the Indiana Department of Transportation to turn over all its land related to the bridge to United, which is going to build the new bridge and operate it privately through tolls.
The agreement also gives INDOT land it wants for other projects.
The actual land transfer will take place after the demolition of the old bridge, which is supposed to be finished by the end of the year.
United is working on land surveys, design and permit applications. Once work actually starts on the new bridge, the project should be completed in 24 to 30 months.
