New sidewalks from the Wendy’s in Brighton Park to the corner of Lawyer’s Road and Hwy. 51 are nearing completion in Mint Hill. This is part of the pedestrian plan approved by the Mint Hill Board of Commissioners in May 2011, aimed at providing safe walking paths connecting uptown businesses. According to the plan, residents can expect to have access to sidewalks all the way down that side of Hwy. 51 through town.
