The Eastern Kentucky University pedway over Lancaster Ave. reopened today after months of repair work. A large truck with an upright hydraulic hoist crashed into the pedway in September of last year.

An Eastern Kentucky University pedway that was severely damaged in September reopened Monday.

A large truck with an upright hydraulic hoist crashed into the pedway just before noon Sept. 9. No students were hurt in the crash.

The pedway crosses busy Lancaster Avenue and allows hundreds of students to walk between EKU’s main campus and a large student parking area and the Grand Campus Apartments.

After months of repairs, EKU facilities officials announced Monday on Twitter that the pedway was ready for student use.
