State Funding to Complete Sidewalk in Forest City

By Sam Miller
A stretch of sidewalk in Forest City will be completed thanks to state funding. A sidewalk along State Route 247 between Forest City and Browndale was mostly completed last year, but about 4,000 feet was left undone, meaning pedestrians had to walk on the road. The project will receive roughly $303,000 from the Multimodal Transportation Fund. The project also includes the installation of ramps, crosswalks and guide rails.
