If you’re in a wheelchair, pushing a stroller or riding your bicycle along new sidewalks in Franklin, tuck in your elbows and watch out for street signs.
New, wider sidewalks were built as part of a project to reconstruct North Main Street, just north of downtown Franklin. But take a stroll and you’ll soon find several no-parking signs sticking up in the center of the brand new concrete paths.
“It just doesn’t make sense for anyone in a wheelchair, on a bicycle or pushing a stroller or other means of travel, especially skates and skateboards,” Franklin attorney John Emry said. “It just seems to be an unnecessary obstacle where they are placed.”
