Sidewalk project makes Macomb students safer on walk to school

School is back in session and city leaders in Macomb said they are making it safer for students who walk to and from school.

City Administrator Scott Coker said the project to add sidewalks and another cross walk on the corner of Randolph and Grant street is almost complete.

That’s the intersection kids have to cross to get to the high school.

He said crews will work the next couple of days to put the finishing touches on the concrete and backfill the dirt.

High School principal Scott Sullivan said this will make it easier on students who have to cross the busy street.

“It’s just going to be so much better for our students, the set up is a lot easier to navigate the roadway,” Sullivan said. “The number of kids that we have that are walkers is probably a little bit less than many years ago, but the students that do cross there, this is a much better situation for them.”

The 35,000 dollar project was funded with the infrastructure sales tax.
