Sidewalk safety a concern

Posted

To the editor:

I am writing regarding the new sidewalk that was just completed and connects Keith Hills to the campus of Campbell University.  The sidewalk is a great asset for the community, and I’ve walked and ridden my bike on it several times already. The work under the highway by Buies Creek is quite amazing.

But, oh my, the sidewalk is just over 2 feet from U.S. Highway 421. I’ve been buffeted by a truck traveling by, and nobody goes the 45-mph speed limit. 

I’m not sure what the solution is, but I’m concerned for the safety of the people on the sidewalk. I hope something bad doesn’t have to happen to make this a safer situation.
