Jim Reed gave an update on the Sandy Beach Bridge Renovation Project during the Indian Lake Area Historical Society monthly meeting Monday.
The project will re-deck the bridge that spans Russells Point Harbor and will include walkways, benches, and historical markers. The markers will include information about famous people from the Indian Lake area and the amusement park that used to set at the bridge’s location. The goal of the project is to make the area have a public park-like atmosphere that will allow the community to crossover the bridge for the first time in decades.
The proposed walkway layout has to be approved by Taco Bell and Rite Aid.
The property owner transfer is expected to be done during September and a groundbreaking could happen for the walkways within the next 60 days.
Approximately $135,000 has been raised for the project and a reverse raffle is scheduled for November 9th. A new boat will be raffled off during the event.
