(Shepherd announces construction firm for pedestrian underpass project)

Shepherdstown, WV--C. William Hetzer, Inc., of Hagerstown, Maryland, won the bid for the Route 480 pedestrian underpass project at Shepherd University.

The Route 480 underpass project is being undertaken by Shepherd University this spring and summer in an effort to improve pedestrian safety and improve traffic flow on Route 480/Duke Street.

The project features an underpass connecting East Campus and West Campus which will eliminate pedestrian crossings on Route 480 by raising the road and creating a pedestrian walkway underneath. The location of the pedestrian underpass is approximately 25 yards northeast of the existing pedestrian crosswalk. The underpass is slated to be ready for pedestrian use in August.
