You won't see a sidewalk this year along the road where two children were killed walking to day care.
Their father was walking Kadrien Pendergrass, 5, and Jeremy Brewton Jr., 1, to day care on West Tylvola Road when they were killed in February. Because there was no sidewalk, the family was walking on the shoulder and a delivery truck hit and killed them.
City council rushed to shift money around to build a sidewalk there. But, now, 11 months after the accident, there's still no sidewalk.
WSOC asked city leaders when crews will break ground. They said design should take until the end of spring or early summer, assembling the land and working with homeowners will take nine months, and picking a builder and starting the work will take another six months.
That brings it to fall 2014, two and half years after the children's death.
When asked how much she'd like to see that sidewalk, neighbor Tenerra McLendon said, "Oh, really, a lot. Like 100 percent."
In an email to WSOC, council member LaWana Mayfield reminds people, "[T]his is not an overnight process" and that it will still mean a sidewalk there two years ahead of schedule.
On the same day, city council moved money around for this project, it also moved money around for three other sidewalks: East Sugar Creek, Carmel and Nevin roads. Those are on similar timetables. The total cost is $2.1 million.
