Status Update (chronological): 

At first, the project was not funded this round, but ODOT's Safety group "found" additional dollars and funded the entire request, for ODOT's FY2021. That is a $306,221 grant, which will need to be started for preconstruction designs and planning purposes.
As of November 18th, Memorial Drive was completely resurfaced by the village. The next step in the process will be the new walk path being put in by the state next year.
