The tunnel will complete the trail connection through downtown Fishers, joining South Street and North Street, and establishing a full connection from 106th Street to 131st Street. In 2020, paving was completed on the portions of the trail between 131st Street and North Street, and South Street to 106th Street. According to the City, these paved portions are now open for pedestrian and bicycle access.
Currently, the remaining sections to be paved north of 131st and south of 106th are not scheduled, but expected in 2022. You can find additional information on the trail and plans along with photos and updates during the tunnel construction at playfishers.com/NickelPlateTrail.
