New path to enhance safety for pedestrians traveling between Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s campuses

Author: NDWorks


The University has begun construction on a new pedestrian path along Saint Mary's Road, which connects the Notre Dame campus to Saint Mary's College. The new path, separate from the road that cars use, will further enhance safety for those who walk or bike to and from both campuses and those who may choose to enter the Notre Dame campus from the State Road 933 trail. 

The 10-foot-wide path will run alongside Saint Mary’s Road from State Road 933 to Holy Cross Drive near the Grotto and is expected to be open to pedestrian traffic later this spring. Once construction is complete, work will begin to resurface Saint Mary’s Road. Both the road and pedestrian path will be lit by new LED lighting fixtures and poles.
