Need a validated cost estimate on this 1 mile stretch of road . I see stone walls ,telephone poles ,large trees and cannot envision a 5 foot sidewalk along this stretch of road ( south side). I think the need is there and the reason is sound but 500k for a 1 mile stretch is significant! This need came out of nowhere last year and has now risen to be a top town priority, how does that come about in our road rating system?? Very interesting indeed ! Still, I need to see hard cost estimates documented by people who are going to do the work and we can go from there. I'm concerned the costs could be higher. I don't support this article at this time.
