The overpass bridge on Indiana State Road 933 is getting a makeover. It is the first in a series of projects to help beautify South Bend. The theme is "connectivity," in an attempt to bring together all parts of the community.

After removing the "hall of fame" sign on the bridge, community members decided the downtown entrayway needed some color.

The mural depicts several South Bend landmarks and is funded by donations only.

It is a group effort, combining both the public and the private sectors, to create a pleasing visual as people enter the city.

"This is truly a community effort, I mean all the way from the idea to the design to the actual implementation, the sponsorship," said project consultant Nick Easley. "To now, the many hundreds of volunteers that have come out in support."

One southbond lane will remain closed as needed through the duration of the project, expected to last through mid-September, for safety reasons.

Volunteers are welcome to participate, just email
