The Health Department is excited to announce that the Village of New Lexington’s application for funding to install sidewalks on Carroll Street will be submitted to the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) in January of 2023. This application is to be celebrated as it represents many years of work on behalf of a group of dedicated, invested people who have been working since 2017 to improve the safety of the area and locate funding for sidewalk development.

Carroll Street (St Rt 345) runs north/south in front of the dollar stores, auto parts stores, Kroger, McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and Cooper Standard. Most residents of New Lexington are well familiar with the area and those who have attempted to walk in the area certainly understand the need for safety improvements as there are no sidewalks on either side of the roadway. The area is the main shopping district for New Lexington, provides access to New Lexington Schools and according to collected data generates the most trips for Perry County Transit.
