Residents Upset Over Columbia Sidewalks
"It's almost dangerous," said Carrie Ramlow, runner. "I have twisted my ankle before."
Ramlow runs along the road almost every day, and she says it's time to fix the busted sidewalks.
"Especially if it's been raining or bad weather or if you're walking your dog you can trip," she explained. "There's a lot of debris, it's hard to get around."
Neighbors are asking city leaders what it would cost to fix up the area between West Boulevard and Garth.
"This is a project that should be done right away in my opinion," said Mayor Darwin Hindman.
He says the road should be an example.
"It's a street that's heavily used, it could serve as a demonstration so people could see what would happen if you really do your street right," he explained.
Along with the plans to get rid of this crumbling concrete, Hindman wants to add bike lanes to this section of West Broadway.
Hindman also wants to plant trees along the road and move above ground power lines underground. For Ramlow, it's a plan that won't come a minute too soon.
"They've been this way for so long," she said. "They're pretty dismal."
City leaders are waiting on a report from the City Council that shows how much improvements will cost.
