Some sidewalk improvements are coming to Jane Lew.

Workers are replacing the sidewalks on Depot Street and adding handicap accessibility.

The old sidewalks were almost irreparable after years of wear and tear.

Town Councilman Tom Fox said these sidewalks may not be on a high-traffic street but they do see plenty of traffic.

"We have a lot of kids that walk up there, and a lot of folks walk up there because there are apartments down in through there, so we felt that got the most foot traffic, and that's why we chose that one," Fox said.

Fox said the town plans to upgrade other sidewalks but can only get grants for one at a time.
