  1. It’s a wonder it doesn’t happen every day. The busiest traffic area in Statesville and no sidewalks from Wendy’s to Lowes and some stretches on the east side of Turnersburg Road. It was previously planned. “City of Progress”???

  2. Sidewalks needed. Now a man is injured and a young driver traumatized. With all the millons being spent a short sidewalk is a cheap way to save lives.
