The end is in sight. Seriously.


The two-year construction of Hanna Avenue, which will feature attractive landscaping and medians designed for pedestrian safety, should be completed in November.

In a promising indication that the major reconstruction of Hanna Avenue might be completed someday, workers moved
the barricades and routed traffic onto the northern lanes of the roadway this spring as work began on the southern side of
the new median. For motorists, that’s meant a smoother drive on fresh pavement as the project continues. For pedestrians, it means a slightly nicer environment on the north side of the street, where new sidewalks have been poured and unsightly utility poles removed. And attractive landscaping is in the offing.

The Hanna Avenue project extends beyond the campus to both the east and west. Weather permitting, the project should be completed in November.
