Tight walking

       For lack of a sidewlk, pedestrians such as these two currently have to walk in the street on the east side of South Eighth Street between Highway 24 and Fountain Creek (the bridge over it is in the left foreground.) But that situation is changing, as part of a long-planned city project thatís just getting underway. Evidence can be seen in the background, with the workers and the right-hand lane closed off. The work, which will include a footbridge over Fountain Creek, is expected to last until September.
