A Reminder to all Walkers and Runners

Please remember to make use of sidewalks adjacent to streets. We have received reports of some people walking in the street on west Oak Street among other places. There have been sidewalks installed along most streets to facilitate safe pedestrian movement.

If no sidewalk is available, pedestrians may walk in the street as close to the edge of the roadway as possible. Please remember that it is a violation of state law for a pedestrian to walk upon a roadway if there is an accessible sidewalk adjacent to the road. Your help is greatly appreciated in assisting to make Zionsville a safer place for all to enjoy.
