Hospital Hill

Resident makes suggestion to improve safety on Highway 97

Regarding the letter in The Morning Star Sept. 4 mentioning a pedestrian overpass on Hospital Hill, it’s a good idea.

But what about an underpass?

Most of the pedestrian area would be protected from the elements.

It should be well lit for safety reasons.

If we can build them for creature crossings on our major highways — i.e. turtles, deer, bear, elk — why not for us?

After all, we do pay for it through our taxes.

Are we less important?
