Council eyes new sidewalk for blind curve

  • 0

Carroll City Council members Monday will consider construction of a new sidewalk on the easterly side of Main Street and Timberline Drive on a curve that can obscure walkers and bikers and motorized vehicles to drivers in the southernmost part of Main Street near Rolling Hills Park.

The proposed 4-foot-wide sidewalk would run about 1,000 feet from the driveway at 111 Timberline Rd. to the Main Street intersection with Hillcrest Drive.

Residents and others long have complained about the danger of the route with no sidewalk.

The plan also includes a connection to the Sauk Rail Trail, which runs through the park.

The City Council, which has been supportive of the plan, will decide whether to include a guardrail for a total estimated project cost of $80,000.

Installing the sidewalk without a guardrail will cost an estimated $65,000.

If approved, construction is expected to start in the late summer or fall.
