Crosswalk to be moved, updated: Pathway between Center Grove schools will eliminate pedestrian traffic troubles




A crosswalk between two Center Grove schools will be moved and better lighted to make it safer for pedestrians.

The Johnson County Highway Department will relocate a crosswalk on Stones Crossing Road between Center Grove High School and Center Grove Middle School Central so that teachers, students and parents won’t have to cross as many lanes of traffic in bad lighting, highway director Luke Mastin said.

The total cost of the project for design and construction will be $201,200. The highway department will cover the cost of the design — which will be $19,800 — and 10 percent of construction costs. A federal grant will cover the remaining 90 percent of the project cost.
