North Central College - Naperville, IL

Walkway improvements—chosen by the Class of 2002 as a class gift—extend from Jefferson Plaza north to Benton Avenue.

A second phase of the campus beautification project is designed to improve the appearance of the well-traveled path known as the pedestrian spine—an interior walkway between Brainard and Loomis streets that extends from just north of Chicago Avenue to School Street. The walkway connects the south end of the campus with the north end for walkers and bicyclists.

Scheduled for 2012, the plan calls for making this feature of campus more inviting and attractive by burying overhead power lines, installing brick pavers the length of the walkway and across street intersections, and adding landscape plantings.
