(Richmond, IN)--One of the focuses of Richmond in the coming years will be developing what will be known as “The Loop”. It’s a pathway for bicyclists and pedestrians that will connect the Uptown area to the Depot District on 7th and 10th Streets. Now, it will enter a second phase. "This second phase will represent a $2.5 million enhancement that will link this entire system together," said Mayor Dave Snow during his State of the City address Thursday night. He shared this bit of news. "I'm very excited to announce that INDOT has agreed to fund just over $2 million for the keystone in this project." Construction of the second phase is still a couple of years away.
