Sidewalks are so important and much needed in this area as its just not safe for walkers/cyclists. Keeping the historical value to this part of town should be priority.

Lightburne is another roadway Liberty inherited from the state and is trying to both modernize and create a by-pass. Adding sidewalk and bike/ped path is important to continue alternate transportation methods in the community

At the very least, sidewalks/bike paths on both sides would be a much needed safety measure for the residents as well as the college students.
