Hiram, Ohio – The long awaited opening of Hinsdale Road East connecting Hiram College’s upper campus to its sports complex and residential areas on the lower campus, will be marked with a grand opening ceremony at 9:30 a.m. December 1 at the intersection of State Rt. 700 and Hinsdale Street in Hiram Village.

The $355,000 project, begun this fall by the Ohio Department of Transportation, will allow vehicles to move east from Rt. 700 and connect to Winrock Road that serves the College’s lower campus, sports fields, townhouse residence halls and parking lots.
The College secured funding for the project, and oversaw the planning and construction in concert with the Village. The road will be formally turned over to the village as a dedicated street.
“This is unusual, because it is usually the public entity which plans and builds the road,” said College President Thomas V. Chema. “This will really improve the flow of traffic and access to the campus.”
