What is Sinclair’s plan to redevelop 4th and 5th Streets?

Sinclair's plan to redevelop 4th and 5th Streets includes making both streets more safe and friendly to pedestrian traffic coming from parking Garage A to the main campus.

As Sinclair works to improve Building 10 as the new Integrated Student Services Center, Building 10 will also become the front door to Sinclair. Guests will have a clear walkway to the new front door of Sinclair, across 4th and 5th Streets, from the main parking Garage A.

Redevelopment will be done to 4th and 5th Streets reducing the number of traffic lanes needed for pedestrian's to cross, adjacent sidewalks and property. Acres of asphalt and concrete will be removed, and more than 200 additional trees will be planted. The project also involves lowering the speed limit in affected areas to 25 miles per hour, establishing a single crosswalk between the Fifth Street garage and Building 10, enhancing the existing elevated pedestrian walkway, and narrowing or altering roadways to improve safety, traffic flow and aesthetics. Read more about the project on Dayton Business Journal.

Will my parking lot be open during construction?

Yes. All Sinclair parking lots will be open and access will remain as it normally is. 5th Street access to Lot D will remain open. Access to Lot C (conference center) and Lot B will also remain open, as well as the Health Sciences Center dental clinic parking.

However please plan accordingly, as drive time may be affected during high volume periods in the day as traffic goes to one lane on 4th and 5th Streets.

We recommended an alternate route to student and visitor parking in Lot A using the rear entrance on Mead Street.

How long will the construction last?

The City of Dayton's Water Main Replacement Project on Fourth and Fifth Streets through Dayton Campus will last for about 2 months.

Additionally, this work is in coordination with Sinclair’s plan to redevelop 4th and 5th Streets. The Sinclair project is scheduled to begin immediately after the completion of the city’s water main replacement project. Updates will be provided as appropriate.
