The street leads right into Grambling State University and many students travel the road each morning, either by foot or bicycle to get to school.
For six years, Mayor Edward Jones has been working to get the project off the ground and now that funding is in place, construction is slated to begin soon.
For Jones, this project is a labor of love, because without sidewalks, several people have either been injured....or killed as a result.
The city has a $300,000 grant for this project and the money will not just used for sidewalks, but also to educate students about road safety.
