Franconia Road has substantial sidewalk on its North and South sides from the intersection of South Van Dorn Street to Commerce Street. Approximately two miles of these sidewalks were constructed with widths varying from four feet six inches to five feet. In the vicinity of Lee High School, the width jumps to eight feet.
The sidewalk on Franconia Road along the property is a concrete construction four feet eight inches wide, approximately 70 feet long. The Franconia Road sidewalk is aging, and is about ten years old. The curb cut is the older variable-plane type, but the segments connecting the sidewalk to the cut are reasonably flat.
