Groundbreaking ceremony for Riverwalk Phase III (Between Conner and Logan streets)

When: Friday, Nov. 4 from 2 to 2:45 pm.

Where: Behind the Hamilton County Judicial Center near Conner Street in downtown Noblesville.

Who: Hamilton County Commissioner Steve Dillinger, Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear and Butler Fairman and Seufert President John Brand will speak with photos of county and city elected officials to follow during the groundbreaking.

Background: The Riverwalk project began construction in 2008 after being conceived by Hamilton County Commissioner Steve Dillinger to provide a scenic walkway near White River in downtown Noblesville.

 - Phase One of Riverwalk was a Hamilton County project and consisted of creating a trail to connect the Hamilton County employee parking lot underneath the Conner Street/State Road 32 bridge and back up to the Judicial Center.

- Phase Two of Riverwalk was a City of Noblesville project to extend the trail under the Logan Street bridge and up again where it now connects with the pedestrian bridge to Forest Park.

- Phase Three, the final phase, will connect the two completed portions of Conner and Logan streets behind the Judicial Center and join with the recently opened southern portion extension that runs from Maple Avenue to Division Street. Phase Three construction will begin later this month and is expected to be completed in 2017.
