Comment: I am also concerned that the project has omitted a sidewalk on the east side of S. Acadian. In an urban environment, near schools, parks and Universities sidewalks are a must.

Comment: 6. Improvements to the Perkins Rd-S. Acadian Intersection and underpass. If the Perkins Rd entrance and exits ramps are removed, that will increase the use of S.

They are not shown on the roll maps, but I assume these are just for demonstration. There might be an opportunity to add an alternate path for bikes and pedestrians. With the […]
