Eudora pedestrian safety group moves meeting to October

September 14, 2010

Next month, the Eudora Pedestrian Safety Committee will meet to discuss short-term solutions for having foot and bike traffic safely cross Kansas Highway 10.

The meeting was originally planned for Thursday but scheduling conflicts have pushed the meeting back to 7 p.m. Oct. 21 at Eudora City Hall, 4 E. Seventh St.

With the potential for funding of a separate pedestrian bridge still years away, the committee is looking at alternatives to accommodating pedestrians who want to cross K-10 using the Church Street bridge.

The bridge connects the middle school, high school and football stadium to the majority of the city’s homes.

As early as next year, the pedestrian safety committee would like to see concrete barriers go up along the Church Street bridge to allow a safe place for walkers and bikers.

Those plans will be discussed at the October meeting.
