Xavier students will face the familiar construction on Dana

Avenue until June 1, 2012. The Dana Avenue Widening

Project was started last year with the goal of straightening out the s-curve, taking out the bad curb along the road and putting in pavers on the north side, ultimately making the road safer for pedestrians. Left turn lanes are also being

installed to improve traffic flow in the area.

Dana Avenue will also have a landscaped boulevard design

as grassy medians are set to be installed.

Construction on Montgomery Road began last year, as well. This construction includes widening the road, inserting a tree lawn and moving the sidewalks back, which,

according to the lead project engineer Bob Cost, is intended to increase the safety of pedestrians. "The project is about 98 percent done," Cost said. "What we have left to do is to put in dirt and topsoil, seed the tree lawn, relocate

a few trees, remove telephone poles and install the sidewalk." The project will not only increase pedestrian safety, but also aid in beautifying the area. Cost said they plan on installing more trees in the area in an effort to beautify Montgomery Road. These projects are being funded by a $1.7 million contribution from Neyer Properties and a $1.4 million grant from the Ohio Job Ready Safety Sites programs.
