(WASHINGTON) - The Daviess County Commissioners and City of Washington have agreed to start a feasibility study to determine the costs of building a walkway and bicycle lane from the Meridian Street Junction with State Road 57 South to Wal-Mart.

At the Commissioners meeting, safety of pedestrians walking to and from Wal-Mart and other businesses was the main topic of discussion.

Mayor Joe Wellman says it's a dangerous situation and Commissioner Michael Taylor conferred, saying he has had some close calls in the area.

District INDOT Director Rusty Fowler says the state has plans to improve the Meridian Street Junction with the highway. He also suggested that the state's Community Pathways Program might be a source of funding.
