City Council members will soon consider a list of proposed new sidewalks in Fayetteville.

The council’s Transportation Committee this week recommended approval of the 2019-20 sidewalk construction plan, which includes 21 projects in various neighborhoods across town.

Most of the work is new construction, but a few projects up for consideration include replacement of existing sidewalks.

New work includes a sidewalk on the west side of Mission Boulevard from North Street to Old Wire Road. As it stands, pedestrians currently must cross Mission Boulevard from west to east at North Street to continue toward Old Wire Road.

In downtown, officials propose a replacement of the sidewalk on the west side of Church Avenue from Spring Street to Mountain Street.

Near the University of Arkansas campus, new sidewalks would be added on the west side of Hughes Street to fill the gaps between Leverett Avenue and Garland Avenue.

Sidewalks are also proposed for the south side of Mount Comfort Road from Garland Avenue to Addington Avenue, and on the east side of Double Springs Road from Abilene Drive to Green Chapel Road.

It’s now up to the full council to make the final decision.

Below are the full lists of recommended sidewalk construction projects for 2019 and 2020.
