The Village of Lockland is pleased to announce it has received a $400,000 Safe Routes to School grant from the Ohio Department of Transportation. These funds will create safer walking and biking routes for students through improved lighting, visible signage in school zones and crosswalks and safe pavement for travel for both walking and biking to school.
The project includes repair and replacement of sidewalks through the Villages of Lockland and Arlington Heights limits, specifically along Wyoming Avenue from Central to Elm Street and Mill Street from Wyoming Avenue to Carthage Avenue. Crosswalk lights, audio, and flashing beacons will be installed along with repainting of crossings. Input provided by Hamilton County Public Health and Planning Departments, the Lockland Local School District, as citizens in public meetings was used to develop the improvement plan.
“As Mayor I am very excited to receive the news of the Village of Lockland being awarded the Safe Routes to School grant.
I want to thank Village Administrator Krista Blum, Hamilton County Public Health, HCDC and the Lockland School District for all
working together to achieve this awesome grant. This grant will be used to increase the safety of our children within our school district
during their travels to and from school.”
Mayor Mark Mason Sr.
