Highway concerns

We live in the Colbert area, traveling frequently on the Newport Highway into town. We are confused about the sidewalks that have been constructed between Mt. Spokane Park Drive and Day-Mt. Spokane Road. Who will they serve? I don’t recall seeing anyone walking there, and I would not consider it safe to do so. Many workers were on the scene during the construction, at no small cost.

Also, the new “wiggly” areas on the north and south sides of Day-Mt. Spokane are very difficult to see at night when it’s raining. Those of us who know they are there are aware of them; however, someone not familiar with that area might have problems navigating them. Perhaps if the cement edges of the islands were painted with a reflective paint, it might prevent accidents due to drivers being unaware of them.
