DOVER, Del.- Before Keisha Woolford gets on the bus every day, she and her daughter must walk on a sidewalk-less road to get there.
"We are walking back and forth," she said. "We can't, we have to get on the side of the road and I don't want my child to get hit, neither do I.
Part of West Street have sidewalks, but not all areas. In the future, that could change.
"Essentially we're looking to connect the Dover Transit Center, the bus terminal downtown in Dover, with an existing trail that's on North Street," said Rich Vetter with the Dover/Kent County Metropolitan Planning Organization.
The planning organization is hoping to make the area, especially the transit center, more pedestrian friendly.
"There is a shared-use path, a bike and walking path and obviously we're trying to connect the west part of Dover into the downtown Dover," Vetter said.
For some, it isn't soon enough.
"Especially on rainy days it's really muddy and so sidewalks would help because it would be less mud getting tracked back and forth and it's easier with strollers for people with children," Woolford said.
Officials would like to see progress made in the next few years.
"We're going to fill in some of the missing pieces," Vetter said. "There's still areas that despite a lot of the sidewalks and crosswalks and amenities and things like that, there are still gaps we need to fill in."
