Safety among pedestrians is one of the most important issues in a community. Sidewalks are built to give them a safe place to pass through traffic, and in Oklahoma City, as a part of the MAPS 3 project, new sidewalks are being constructed all over the city. The project will enhance roadsides and will make it easier for pedestrians to pass through and avoid road accidents. An estimated $9 million will be allocated to this project.
MAPS 3 is an ongoing improvement project in Oklahoma City. Different beautification projects have been planned and scheduled over a period of 10 years to enhance the quality of life in the city and improve the local economy.
Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett and MAPS 3 Citizen Advisory Board Chair Tom McDaniel will be celebrating the launching of the new sidewalks project on August 19 at 10:00 a.m. at the N Western between NW 104 and NW 104 Terrace.
