Pogue's Run

Pogue's Run Tunnel
Pogue's Run once flowed through downtown
Indianapolis above the ground. In 1914, the city built a
box culvert to bury the stream from New York Street to
the White River. This project was an engineering feat at
the time and was undertaken to reduce flooding, risks
from disease-carrying mosquitoes, and odors from
sewage and industrial pollution.
