The installation of sidewalks along a dangerous section of Peach Street, is officially approved this morning.
The Erie Metropolitan planning organization unanimously approved Millcreek Townships $373 thousand plan for sidewalks on Peach Street, running south from Kunz Road to the Wendy’s Restaurant, as well as sidewalks on Kunz Road running east toward Jodie Lane.
That area is where 2 pedestrians were killed in recent years.
The project will now be submitted to PennDOT transportation improvement plan for federal funding.
The next step is for PennDOT to begin the design process.
With todays news that PennDOT has additional money for the project available now, the township says they expect the project to be complete by the end of 2017.
