I noticed recently that a new section of sidewalk has been installed on the west side of Coit Rd, between Lebanon and College. I am curious, however, why the sidewalk was built so close to the roadway? I would not feel safe walking that close to 40mph traffic. Why was this kind of development permitted?

Further south, at the church property, the sidewalk is set back from the street, and curves through the trees. It looks great and seems very safe. Don't the city building regulations stipulate that on a major road, the sidewalk should be set back a certain distance?

Thanks Matt for the post and let me assure you that the sidewalk located along the west side of Coit Road is in compliance with Section 6 (Thoroughfare and Circulation Design Requirements) of the Engineering Design Standards. It is also similar to the majority of the sidewalks you will encounter along all of our major roadways. See link below:


As for the sidewalk along the church property further south, the property owner worked with city staff when developing to locate the sidewalk further back onto private property while allowing citizen access to the sidewalk.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me at (972) 335-5585 ext. 127.

Thanks, Hulon

The sidewalk on the south side of Jeremy, between Promise Land and Belle Chase has terrible langauge engraved in it. It's been this way for years. Can this be fixed?

Please contact Public Works at 972-335-5520 and ask that a service request be generated. They will ask for a specific location and then will send someone out to review and determine what can be done.
