Update: This list was amended to remove the Halsell Road and Oliver Avenue sidewalks at the Jan. 2 City Council meeting. It was then passed.

Fayetteville could add over a mile of new sidewalks next year if a proposed plan is given the green light later this month.

Members of the City Council’s Transportation Committee this week approved the 2018 sidewalk improvement project list, which includes about 7,220 feet of new sidewalks and maintenance in all four of the city’s wards.

It’s now up to the full council to approve the project later this month.

The proposed work includes 1,000 feet of sidewalk on both sides of Huntsville Road from Blair Avenue to Morningside Drive in southeast Fayetteville.

Other large projects include a 1,100-foot sidewalk on the north side of Halsell Road from Cross to Oliver avenues, 1,050 feet along the west side of Green Acres Road from Poplar Street to College Avenue, 660 feet of sidewalk along both sides of Meadow Street from Block to East avenues, and 650 feet along either the east or west side of Oliver Avenue from Maple Street to Halsell Road.

Terry Gulley, Transportation Services director, said one project in downtown Fayetteville will help better connect the Chancellor Hotel to Block Avenue. Officials hope to add sidewalks on both sides of Meadow Street from Block to East Avenue, however the project will require narrowing the road because of two buildings that are already pushed up to the curb. If approved, the project will include street trees and lamps to match the improvements made to Block Avenue several years ago.

Below are the full lists of recommended sidewalk construction projects and asphalt overlays for 2018.
