Crews built a missing link in the sidewalk system on the south side of SR 531. This section of sidewalk provides safe access for school children walking along SR 531, and for area residents using the Lakewood business district. It is adjacent to four schools in the Lakewood school district and connects to the Community Transit stop.
The new sidewalk will reduce the risk of pedestrian accidents involving school children and local residents.
