Mount Aloysius College held an outdoor ribbon cutting today for the new Community Sidewalk that connects the Mount Aloysius campus to downtown Cresson. The project was made possible by a $666K Grant from PennDOT, a $100k investment from Mount Aloysius College, and additional support from Cresson Township for lighting along the sidewalk. The College also contributes physical and staff resources to maintain cleanliness, safety and overall use of the sidewalk from campus to town. The project will allow greater interaction between Mount Aloysius students/employees and the downtown Cresson business district. It will also enhance the safety of those pedestrians making the trek along Admiral Peary Highway.
