Sidewalk Fight

Sidewalks and a deadly intersection have a city council at odds with another organization.
ALTOONA, BLAIR COUNTY - Sidewalks and a deadly intersection have a city council at odds with another organization.

Altoona City Council voted unanimously in favor of petitioning PennDOT to add sidewalks to the intersection at 17th Street and Pleasant Valley Boulevard, as part of the planned widening and improvement project there.

This is right near the mega Sheetz and the site of several accidents.  A teen died there in 2008 while trying to cross the road.

PennDOT says they haven't ruled it out, but they want to make sure they can make it a safe crossing before the encourage people to try.

PennDOT says they want to meet with Altoona officials and anyone else who is interested to talk about the project.
