Kathryn Walker, Principal of the Woodson Center For Excellence, says that she is thrilled for the safety that sidewalks provide. "Anytime you are a parent, you say stay on the sidewalk, don't walk in the street or don't ride your bike in the street and sidewalks just provide a natural barrier for safety for students of any age... And I think it provides a little comfort and peace of mind knowing that students are going to have a specific and designated path to get them where they need to go."
It is unclear at this time as to when the sidewalk project will begin. Justice Construction of Abilene was awarded the bid for the $238,000 project.
