When I read about this young exchange student being killed by a car on Hwy80, I just shook my head, because I feared that this was going to happen. Several times over the last few months, I've been at the red light in the construction zone in front of MC, when a "swarm" of 6 exchange students surrounded my car (both front and back) trying to cross Hwy80 going toward Kroger's. Yes, they need an education on safe walking.
Yes, Clinton is at fault too. Everytime I've seen Clinton involved with new construction, I wonder: Why didn't they put side-walks/bike-trails? Why didn't they install underground utilities? Why didn't they attempt to make it appealing to the senses. Clinton could take some lessons from our neighbors in Madison.
Take a look at Hwy80 from MC looking toward Jackson, and you will see leaning power poles and wires and wires. There are a few recent shining lights of new construction. The green plantings along the N.S.Cooridor, for instance. But, you don't have to look hard to find severe shortcomings. Let's construct wide side walks that will accomodate an active life style and put an end to zero or partial side-walks that goes no where.
