Batesville school gets new sidewalks

BATESVILLE, AR (KAIT) - A Batesville school got new sidewalks thanks to a safety program with the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department.

Central Elementary Magnet School in Batesville got new sidewalks and two new crosswalks through the "safe routes to school" program.

They were added to make the area safer for pedestrians.

The city applied for the grant through the highway department to make the project happen.
