Blinking solar-powered lights warn vehicles of trail goers in 12 high traffic crossings along the Fairfield Loop Trail. Fairfield public works director Darrel Bisgard said each crossing cost roughly $2,500, paid for by a Community Transformation Grant awarded to the Jefferson County Health Center to make the city more pedestrian friendly. After an unknown person recently shot and broke a light in the South 32nd street crossing, Bisgard said it raised the question of who is responsible for its repair. He brought the issue to a Public Safety & Transportation Committee Meeting Thursday. Committee members agreed the city will most likely be liable since it owns the trail.
