DARIEN, Conn. — Darien readers want to see new or improved sidewalks on roads including Hoyt Street, Edgerton Road, Gardiner Street and Old Kings Highway South.
The Darien Daily Voice recently asked its reader on Facebook which streets are most in need of sidewalks.
"Edgerton to West Avenue," wrote Susan Jacoby Marks. "Tons of commuters walk to the Noroton train station on a very busy road."
"Old Kings Highway South needs a sidewalk. There are so many people jogging and trying to walk with strollers and cars are constantly speeding," wrote Cassie Ferrari Yusi.
Dana Grunow wrote that Hoyt Street between Lynn Court and Holmes School barely has a curb and is uneven. "It makes it hard to walk on much less push a stroller or bike with kids. It makes it unsafe for children walking to and from school."
Suzy Seymour wrote that the sidewalk on Middlesex Road at the end of Holmes Avenue "needs repairs, especially ramps for strollers and bikers."
"Gardiner Street is among the many streets needing a sidewalk," wrote Tory Crane, citing "people walking to the YMCA, walking to school, walking to the train and people driving way too fast."
Darien Public Works officials recently identified its top seven sidewalk projects, which included the intersection of Leroy Avenue and Middlesex Road, Tokeneke Road near Old Kings Highway South, and Mansfield Avenue. A total of $120,000 has been set aside in next year's budget for the construction of new sidewalks.
