Lined by businesses and stops for the Interurban Trolley, Cassopolis Street is one of the busiest roads in Elkhart. In addition to vehicles on the road, pedestrians can often be seen walking along the sides and crossing the street.

On Saturday, March 22, a pedestrian died after being struck by a car in the 2200 block of Cassopolis Street and some readers mentioned that the lack of sidewalks made that stretch of road dangerous. The Elkhart Truth asked readers if they thought sidewalks should be put in on Cassopolis Street. Check out what they said below.


What do you think? Should Cassopolis Street have sidewalks? Is there any other road in Elkhart or Elkhart County where sidewalks should be put in?
