A new sidewalk will make walking safer in one part of La Grande. The new 850-foot sidewalk along H Avenue between La Grande’s Central Elementary, at the corner of H and Second Street, and Sunset Drive, just below Grande Ronde Hospital, is set to be installed later this year. The sidewalk will be installed by the City of La Grande, which received federal funds for the project via a Safe Routes to School grant. Work on the sidewalk will start this spring and will be finished before the start of the 2019-20 school year.
