Letter: Sidewalks, bike paths needed from Jefferson to Perkins

How do we go about getting sidewalks or a bike path from Jefferson Terrace to Perkins Road? You take your life in your hands when you try to walk on Bluebonnet and pass under I-10.

Of course, you do that when you drive also since the left-turn light from Bluebonnet onto the interstate must read “Go Fast and Run This Light!” since it happens so often. It would be great to connect both sides of the parish bisected in our area by I-10. I would hardly ever have to use my car to access shopping and entertainment.
