  1. The Bob Cummings Lincoln Trail Bridge that connects City of Cannelton, Indiana to City of Hawesville, Kentucky now has a new facelift. This bridge is now considered Historical. Indiana Department of Transportation, the past two years(2015 and 2016), has sponsored the maintenance and painting of the Bridge. The bridge has been restored to its original color.
