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



The University is beginning construction on a new pedestrian path to further enhance safety for Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s students, faculty and staff, visitors and Holy Cross religious, who walk or bike to and from both campuses.

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.
