Safer Streets for All

For decades, we’ve been building roads to make way for more cars, but something happened along the way – we made some of them nearly impossible for anything but driving a car. Bike lanes and shared use paths have been gaining in popularity, though, and the Federal Highway Administration wants us to know there’s funding for safer street designs that slim down roadways and make them more pedestrian-friendly. In fact, look for some of those tax dollars at work over the next year as Wornall Rd. goes on a road diet near  75th Street in Waldo.
