The City of Muncie, Cardinal Greenways, INDOT and KPEP - the Kitselman Pure Energy Park - continue in cooperation to revitalize the former Indiana Steel and Wire and King Indiana Forge  brownfield factory areas on the east side of Muncie.

“People traveling along East Jackson Street have noticed the early beginnings of the reconstruction efforts with the installation of construction fencing around Indiana Steel and Wire”, says Mayor Dennis Tyler.  “Soon, INDOT will be installing temporary signals for the INDOT East Jackson Street Bridge reconstruction that is expected to take about 3 years to rebuild.  While INDOT is working on the Jackson Street Bridge, the City of Muncie will begin to construct the first phase of the Kitselman Trailhead with the reinstallation of the historic Albany Bridge.”

The Kitselman Trailhead, the INDOT East Jackson Street Bridge and KPEP are 3 separate projects.  Each project is financed and managed by separate organizations.  INDOT’s Jackson Street Bridge is funded by the Federal Highway Administration.  KPEP is funded by a private developer.  The Kitselman Trailhead has many funding sources both public and private: INDOT, Indiana DNR, The Community Foundation of Muncie & Delaware County, Inc., Community Enhancement Projects, Inc., Ball Brothers Foundation, Edmund F. and Virginia B. Ball Foundation, City of Muncie and Muncie Sanitary District.
