Traffic is slowed and detoured slightly by a sidewalk in-fill project on Roselle Avenue, between Patterson Road and Soares Drive, on the west side of the street.
The project is creating sidewalk in several sections of those blocks where none currently exists. The situation has affected pedestrians in the area for a long time, with some, especially those in wheelchairs, having to travel on the roadway instead.
The project is scheduled to be completed by Friday, Dec. 11, presumably with contingencies that allow for the recent holiday and delays for rain days.
The new sidewalk project was approved by the city council several meetings ago, and moves toward one of its Strategic Planning Goals of improving handicapped accessibility for the residents of Riverbank.
