According to the city’s website, Kettering will begin major streetscape improvements on the Wilmington Pike corridor between Stroop and Marshall roads “this summer.” Both sides of the street will have new streetlights installed and trees planted.

An immediate target date for the beginning of construction was not available.

On the west side of the corridor, a brand new 8-foot multi-use path will be installed, offering a connection to existing regional bikeways and improved pedestrian access to businesses.
