Tyler (KYTX) -- Some families in Tyler are going to find it easier to walk or bike where they dine out and shop. City leaders approved new sidewalks on Wednesday following letters asking for ways to give cars a rest.
Stratton is one of the parents who wrote to city engineers 5 months ago.
"Now I'll be able to walk to Fresh and there's no reason in the whole reason in the whole world why I should ever drive to Fresh," Stratton said.
City council members approved the installation of sidewalks on the east side of Old Jacksonville and north of Gentry Parkway on Moore. It comes after a study in 2010 looked at where they may be needed.
