Rockpile crosswalk

John Hines crosses Second Street from the Rockpile Museum to get to his car parked across the road in July 2018. The county has received a grant create a crosswalk spanning the busy highway at the museum.

Within the next year, visitors should be able to more safely cross Second Street to get to the Campbell County Rockpile Museum.

The county was recently awarded a $185,800 grant through the federal Transportation Alternatives Program to construct the crosswalk. It includes a $37,160 county match.

The gardener

Is this a joke?? $222,160 for a crosswalk?? Aren't crosswalks just a few gallons of paint? It probably cost more in County staff time to apply for the grant than the cost of a few gallons of paint. And the commissioners have "discussed it for the past three years"?? "A designer needs to be selected". This is unbelievable. Bureaucratic double speak. We really need to get rid of these folks and elect folks that have common sense. GOOD GRIEF!
