Woerner, Golub announce funding for new Caroline Street sidewalks.

 Caroline Street sees heavy pedestrian traffic on a daily basis, especially during school pick-up and drop-off times at Caroline Street School. Currently, the sidewalk down Caroline Street ends abruptly in the middle of a block, before the intersection with Schuyler Drive. The new construction will extend the sidewalk five blocks further, connecting more of the community with a safe route through the neighborhood.
