Sidewalk Talks is a free, monthly event that allows the public to go behind the scenes of the construction of the new Cline Avenue Bridge. Guests can learn from team leaders about construction and engineering techniques, project history, future plans, and are welcome to ask questions and enjoy complementary refreshments. Cline Avenue Bridge, LLC created Sidewalk Talks to build awareness around the return of a vital transportation link in Northwest Indiana and uses its construction as an educational opportunity for individuals of all ages. By providing an avenue for open dialogue and knowledge sharing, the company reinforces its commitment to creating connected communities. Sidewalk Talks also provides the chance to make a personal connection with and leave a lasting mark on the new Cline Avenue Bridge by participating in the Sign-a-Segment activity. After learning about construction progress, guests can sign an actual concrete bridge segment, enshrining their names within a landmark being built to last for the next 150 years. The Sign-a-Segment activity also serves as a fun and interactive photo opportunity.
