New Alvin Road sidewalk to tie into walkways to Newtown Park

February 19, 2015

Alvin Road MapResidents along  Alvin Road will soon be able to walk or jog from their subdivisions to Newtown Park thanks to a half-mile of sidewalk being installed starting in March.

“We’ve had a lot of requests from people to put in a sidewalk, and we’re glad to be able to do that for them,” said Public Works Director Tom Black. “It will give them a safe way to get to two shopping centers at Haynes Bridge and Old Alabama roads, and to all the fun things at Newtown Park. This is another step in our effort to provide connectivity throughout the City.”

The 5-foot-wide sidewalk, located on the east side of the road, will run from Switchbark Lane to Haynes Bridge Road, where it will connect with a sidewalk that goes to Old Alabama Road.

Construction should be finished by late summer.
