University of Louisville Oval Commons
A federally-funded project to beautify the entrance to the University of Louisville Belknap Campus Oval has redesigned a popular means of access, in addition to bolstering campus branding efforts. The new Oval, complete with a soothing water feature, enhanced lighting, and abundant landscaping, strengthens the community feel of the campus. Improved safety features are also part of the project, including new sidewalks and curbs, a reduction of the turn-around area in front of the Oval, and brick pavers designed to alleviate congestion. The project is the first of several planned to enhance the entrances to the University’s campus.
