As Liberty grows walking trails are critical and Liberty Parks and Rec have been doing a great job in forward thinking. This connector would go a long way to bring many neighborhoods together and keep walkers off of the streets!

Liberty definitely needs this path to connect the two areas and to provide safe access for those riding bikes and walking. It would also support new growth in the area!

This would be wonderful for the kids going to school, as well as those of us who walk the trails regularly.

This improvement is long overdue and will make it safe for pedestrians & cyclist. This same strip of road recently had a stop sign up for about one day. The congestion was too great to keep the stop sign which slowed the traffic flow. Thanks for your consideration to improve this area.
