New Sidewalks Coming to Pecos

PECOS - Kids in Pecos will soon have a new way to get to the classroom.

In about three months new sidewalks will be added to school routes as part of a TXDOT program. The hope is to encourage kids and parents to walk instead of ride in a car.

The new sidewalks in the Pecos-Barstow-Toyah ISD will also accomodate wheel-chairs and include ramps.

Pecos Mayor Richard Alligood tells NewsWest9 the city council approved the new project and it's now out for bids.
