AUSTINTOWN TWP., Ohio - Austintown Township Trustees are considering a project designed to increase safety at night for school students.

The township is seeking bids from contractors to install decorative lighting along a half-mile-long stretch of Raccoon Road between Viall and Burkey Roads.

Trustee Jim Davis tells 21 news that the lights would be located along the sidewalk and pedestrian bridge that is used by students walking between Austintown Middle School and the public library branch.

According to a legal notice, bids on the project will be publicly opened and read aloud at 12 Noon on July 22 at the Austintown Senior Center.
