Sidewalk Needed

Aug 21, 2019

To the Editor:

Thank you, Gina Scala, for the article “Final Phase of Causeway Project Doesn’t Address Traffic Safety Concerns on Cedar Bonnet Island” (8/14). And thanks to our neighbor, Laurie Hens, for advocating for a sidewalk from the south side of Cedar Bonnet Island to the north side.

A few addendums to the article are in order:

There is a school bus that drops off students on the north side of the island. I’ve seen the children walk under the bridge with no sidewalk and run across Route 72 to get back home on the south side of the island. I don’t know at present how many children of school age reside on the south side of Cedar Bonnet Island, but it’s still a concern for families in the future if buses drop off on the north side.

Also, it would be nice to have signage that references the name of the island at the exits for our island. There has been much confusion over the names of the two islands in the area: Bonnet Island vs. Cedar Bonnet Island.
