After 7 years of planning, sidewalks to be installed along Colonial Drive


Right now, it isn’t that smooth a ride from the Campus Health Care Center up the street to the Liberty Mini Mart.

But soon Chris Seawood, the care center’s numbers runner, will have an easier time of making his daily journeys to the corner of Colonial Drive and Belmont Avenue in his power chair for the residents, who love the lottery.

“He goes up three times a day to the convenience store to get the daily numbers,” said his friend and fellow resident Mark Meszaros.

After this summer, his ride will be a lot less bumpy.

Trumbull County is going to put in a sidewalk along Colonial Drive from Fifth Avenue to Belmont on the north side, the same side of the street as the care center.

It’s an idea that’s been seven years in the making, Meszaros said as he, Seawood and Liberty Township Administrator Pat Ungaro gathered near the entrance of the care center recently under a beautiful blue sky — a perfect setting for some quality outdoor time.
