WWBPA president Jerry Foster took a walk along the new Meadow Road sidewalk to assess its walkability. Here’s the video of his walk:
While we are pleased that a sidewalk and a bike lane were included in the realignment of the road, there are still issues to be resolved, such as:
- How walkers and those with disabilities will be able to pass one another along the sidewalk;
- How walkers can safely get to Old Meadow Road, now a path with no motor vehicles permitted;
- How walkers will be able to cross at the intersection with Carnegie Center Boulevard.
Read the WWBPA letter suggesting fixes for both the bike lanes and the sidewalk.
