Letter: Bad Kaysville sidewalk could be deadly
First Published Jun 13 2014 04:27 pm • Last Updated Jun 13 2014 04:27 pm

There is a sidewalk located on Main Street (State Route 273) in Kaysville between 1000 South and 775 South. This sidewalk is the only way to get to school for several students who go to Windridge Elementary because there isn’t a bus.

A small portion of this sidewalk is in good condition, but for the most part it is chipped, has cracks and is in very bad condition. Scooter and skateboard wheels usually get stuck in the divots, chips and cracks. I have known many people and students who have gotten hurt on this sidewalk. If students don’t want to use the sidewalk because of its poor condition and fear of getting hurt, they use the gutter and shoulder portion of the street, which is very dangerous because of the fast (the speed limit is 45 mph) cars, buses, and construction machinery on that road.

I have voiced my concern to the state and city, but no one wants to claim responsibility for repairs because of the cost involved. I am afraid that if this does not get fixed, the cost will be much higher than money. It could be an extremely injured child or even worse: death.
