EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Eau Claire residents took walking tours of a local neighborhood as a part of Share and Be Aware's Walktober, which is a statewide program to make walking and biking safer.
Eau Claire transportation leaders led participants through Harding Avenue Hill to see how it would be impacted by a future maintenance project.
The project proposal will be up in front of the city council for approval with potential changes in early 2018.
The city recently conducted a traffic study in the area, which included how traffic flowed with one lane in each direction.
"Both the East Side Hill and the Third Ward, Jefferson Street and the Third Ward and Lee Street on the East Side Hill are somewhat congested even though they're supposed to be neighborhood streets, they're kind of on and off streets for Harding Avenue Hill," said Share Be Aware Ambassador Jeremy Gragert.
The results of the study are still being gathered, but organizers say this walk is not an official part of the study.
