A New Path

McKenna Bishop

Everyday tons of Desert Oasis students cross a railroad track to save time getting to and from school. The tracks are Southwest of the school. Students have been told in the past to avoid crossing the tracks for safety reasons but few listen.

To improve this issue, a pedestrian and bicycle bridge is being built to connect the school to the other side of the tracks where many students live. Along with the bridge, a set of pedestrian lights will be built. It aims to increase general safety among not only students, but also cyclists and pedestrians in the area.

The construction began on March 9th, and it’s expected to wrap up this October.
