MUNCIE, IN – A new link between Ball State University and Muncie — the reconstruction of Martin Street from University Avenue to White River Boulevard — was completed just in time for fall semester.
“The goal is connectivity,” says Marta Moody, director of the city-county plan commission. “We are slowly building that connectivity.”
The reconstruction included new pavement, decorative/energy efficient street lamps with brackets for banners, a wide sidewalk on one side and landscaping.
It reminds BSU student Cassidy Smith of her hometown.
“It kind of reminds me of Carmel a little bit,” she said. “I like it. I like Carmel; I thought it was beautiful and I like what they’re going for here. The flowers look really nice and it adds some charm.”
The project links Ball State to the White River Greenway. The reconstruction added a new cross walk at Martin and White River Boulevard. From there, it’s just a few steps down the sidewalk to a trail head for the greenway.
