Fairlawn SidewalksThe city has nearly finished installing almost a mile of sidewalks in the McClelland Drive/Fairlawn Drive neighborhood, which is one of the major projects included in the voter approved 2014 Transportation Bond.
According to the most recent Citizen Survey, transportation is a top priority and several of the transportation bond projects are designed to help make biking and walking a viable alternative to driving on busy streets. 
The Fairlawn sidewalks will provide residents with a safer walking and biking alternative within the neighborhood as well as connectivity to nearby commercial areas on North Kerr Avenue and Princess Place Drive. The new sidewalks are on McClelland Drive, Fairlawn Drive, Clover Road and Gleason Road. Crews will be onsite for a few more weeks making finishing touches. The final connections to Kerr Avenue on both McClelland Drive and Fairlawn Drive will be finished after the NC DOT completes the Kerr Avenue widening project, which is currently underway.
