Anne Baxter of Seymour said the current, short-term inconvenience of traffic delays along U.S. 50 in Seymour is worth the gain for people with physical disabilities.

Baxter, a retired advocate for people with disabilities and mother of an adult who must use a wheelchair, said making sidewalks along the federal highway comply with disabilities regulations will benefit area residents.
