Students at two Center Grove schools should notice new crosswalks when they return to school after summer break this year.
The Johnson County Commissioners approved hiring a consultant for the project on Monday, and construction should begin in May and be complete by the time school resumes in August.
The project will move a crosswalk that is between the high school and Center Grove Middle School Central. Drivers approaching the current crosswalk can have trouble seeing pedestrians trying to cross Stones Crossing Road when cars are waiting in turn lanes.
The new crosswalk will be moved to be aligned with a driveway heading into the high school parking lot.
The project will cost $200,000 and be paid for with a federal grant. The county has to pay 10 percent of the project costs.
