Lively Hutchinson Trails Discussion 10 Apr 14

A lively discussion about the need for trails in Hutchinson at this week’s City Council meeting.

During the public comment period, Craig Bishop questioned the council on whether the addition of a bike/pedestrian trail on the proposed improvements to the 2nd Avenue Bridge are cost effective and necessary, sparking this exchange with Councilor Bill Arndt.

 

Estimated proposed improvements to the 2nd Avenue bridge would cost about $1-million.  If included, the bike/pedestrian portion of that improvement would cost about $150,000.
