Sidewalk construction will provide safer route to school for local students next fall

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) - Sidewalk construction is ongoing for one local school. School officials say it will make getting to the school much safer for students.

St. Dominic School Principal Sue Kelley says it's all a part of the Safe Routes to School grant the city applied for. Kelley says this project has been a long time coming, but she believes it will really make a difference for their kids getting to and from school.

"We do have a lot of traffic coming in as the parents drop off the students and pick them up," Kelley said. "Same thing with busing. So that was a concern, the safety of those who are walking or riding their bikes."

Eastbound vehicles may encounter routine traffic delays in conjunction with the project. Motorists are asked to drive carefully near the work zone.

Kelley says the project is expected to be completed by June. So St. Dominic students won't be using the sidewalk to get to school until August.
