For Westwood, the only work planned in 2022 is fixing the orphaned corners along Alamo Ave between Brownwell Street and Warren Place.
These will aid walkers to and from Alamo Ave and Hillside Jr High School
2023 will be a major project with 41 orphaned corners being fixed, making the neighborhood sidewalks more usable for all.
This section of Seminole Street (East Side) has been in need of attention as bits are in place and are not accessible.
This is the only direct thru sidewalk from Grand Prairie to Croyden
If you walk your neighborhood, you probably encounter sidewalks that are not safe to walk on - tree-roots have raised many sections as well as other sections have not held up and are cracked and broken.
Link to Township's report on sidewalks.
For years, because of codes, sidewalks on corner lots couldn't go to the street - just like you were not to extend your concrete drive to the street and had to use blacktop or gravel.
Now with ADA guidelines, these sidewalks are being connected to streets with the special "rumble strips" to assist the sight-challenged or those who become distracted.
