On Monday, Aug. 22, Ohio Department of Transportation crews began work on a sidewalk that will extend the length of the walkway going along Limestone Street.

The sidewalk project has come to fruition through sustained efforts from the Village and volunteers, who have worked to continue the Safe Routes to School project.

The total cost of the project is $296,875.80 and was paid for through a grant from ODOT. Crews began their work by Mills Lawn, with hopes of completing the segment between Walnut and Phillips streets within a week.

    Hurray! Having a sidewalk the length of W Limestone will make it safer for some Mills Lawn students walking to school. It also creates a safe path for people living at Lawson Place and other locations along Limestone to get to downtown.

    I actually believe that “sidewalk” is not the correct term. Unless I am mistaken, this will be a multi-purpose path that allows bicyclists to use it.
