Carrollton Road bridge (NE corner of bridge & river)
between Burrows and Delphi, Indiana
This update just in from the Wabash & Erie Canal
Association in Delphi:
Carrollton Bridge over the Wabash River north of Delphi
is practically finished. IT IS BEAUTIFUL! Contractor
onsite manager "George" has been wonderful
to work with. He has helped us (the Canal Association)
to clear out brush on the northeast corner and place
some of the historic cut stone blocks. A boat ramp has
been installed but will only allow foot access (with
canoes) from the parking area. Otherwise the ramp is
too steep because of the old original footer of the
first bridge (1838) that kept from making the grade
lower. Stone blocks guard from someone trying to drive
down the ramp.
From the river, this access site is on the right bank
just upstream of the Carrollton Road bridge.
