These kids are walking at least 1.5 miles to school each day. You really want to call them lazy?!

We need to fix this.

The bike bridge is halfway between Willow Road and Marsh Road. It can easily add 1.5 miles to the route. Web Link

Dear EMP: The pedestrian bridge is NOT advisable, it poses a threat of isolation, there have been attacks and rapes along that bridge for decades. How safe to you feel there? Please, let's add a shuttle bus more often.
