City Councilor Wants West Main Street To Be More Pedestrian Friendly

City Councilor Wants West Main Street To Be More Pedestrian Friendly

A city councilor believes parts of West Main Street are a real challenge for pedestrians and the problem might get worse.   Kathy Galvin (pictured) says the construction site near the future Battle Building is tough to navigate if you’re on foot.   The Battle Building is under construction in the 1200 block of West Main Street, and there’s a huge fence that surrounds it.   The new building will go between what used to be the Northern Exposure restaurant and Jefferson Park Avenue.   Galvin is also worried about the sidewalk that’s across West Main from the Greyhound bus station.  A new Courtyard by Marriott will be built in that area.
