Important Notice Regarding Convent Blvd. November 14-18

Dear Sylvania Franciscan Village Community,

The City of Sylvania has notified the Sylvania Franciscan Village that Norfolk & Southern Railroad will be performing railroad crossing maintenance that will necessitate the closure of Convent Blvd. the week of November 14-18.  This railroad crossing is located between Main Street and the Sylvania Franciscan Village (which includes the Sisters of St. Francis historic campus, Lourdes University, Rosary Care Center, and Convent Park Apartments).

During this much needed crossing maintenance, all employees, students, and residents that drive across the N&S railroad crossing will need to use an alternate route to get to the SFV main campus.  Suggested routes include: Brint Rd. to north on Allen St. to Convent Blvd., Brint Rd. to north on Brinthaven St. to Convent Blvd., or Monroe St. to south on Silica Dr. to Convent Blvd.

Norfolk & Southern and the City of Sylvania appreciate our patience and understanding during the completion of these railroad crossing repairs.

St. Joseph School Families Please Note: 

Some buses to and from St. Joseph School may be affected by this closure the week of November 14-18.  Bus schedules may change in response to the necessity of using an alternate route.  This may be most significant at the end of the school day.
