Oaklawn Ave Sidewalks

So we have some sidewalks on Oaklawn Ave, but where do they go? They start in the middle of nowhere and end before High Ridge? Or are they not done yet?

I will admit that they aren't as bad as I thought they would look. Seems so odd they could not pour concrete for real sidewalks, but the asphalt doesn't look too bad. Still a shame.

And what gives with the new sidewalks and blacktop on 5th Street? Why did they get such nice improvements?

In the end, I don't think I'm brave enough to walk down Oaklawn to High Ridge. Would be nice to walk down there with my kids, but afraid some car would zoom around the corner and hit us.

Don't be afraid to walk on Oaklawn. I walk there every day, to get home from school. The street can be busy at times, but as long as you stay on the side, you are good.

City is trying to get enough money to create concrete sidewalks from where the asphault ends, all the way to High Ridge Road. This will take time, for they are also trying to fix up one blind spot for drivers.
