COLUMBIA - Construction on new sidewalks along West Broadway began Monday. The new 6-foot-wide sidewalks will run on the north side of West Broadway from just west of Stadium to Fairview. The project is funded by GetAbout Columbia. The project will cost $251,704 and should be completed by July.

A public works official says the project will "allow walkers and bikers easier access to newer West Broadway shopping area." The project is part of the state Department of Transportation's plans to improve Stadium Boulevard by constructing sidewalks on both sides of Stadium within 3 to 4 years. In the meantime, temporary lane closures on West Broadway can be expected. Walkers and motorists are also asked to use extreme caution.
