The Bristol Village Board has decided to tell the state Department of Transportation that it does not favor sidewalks, shared use trails or roundabouts as part of the proposed Highway 45 reconstruction project.

The board is in favor of creating a crosswalk on the highway at the entrance to the east parking lot of Bristol School and planting street trees in the area of the project that will have curb and gutter installed, said village administrator Randy Kerkman.

The state is preparing a plan for reconstructing the highway. Earlier this year, the state hosted meetings at village hall that included various alternatives for the road, including roundabouts at key intersections as well as sidewalks and a shared use path from approximately Highway AH south to the state line.

The state said it wanted the opinion of the village, but the decision on all aspects of the project will be made by the state, Kerkman said.

The current timeline calls for the project to begin in 2015, but it has been put off in the past.
