Why isn’t Deckers Creek Trail lit up like a string of Christmas lights around a Christmas tree from Sabraton to downtown Morgantown? Did Divante Coles die because Deckers Creek Trail is not a well lit, active night trail, welcoming to bicyclists? Wouldn’t bicyclists choose a well lit park trail over the extremely dangerous route 7 which the wide, paved rail trail parallels all the way from Sabraton to downtown Morgantown? Reportedly, Divonte Coles was fatally struck on route 7 near the Dominion Post offices, going toward Morgantown after getting off work in Sabraton. Why not make this rail trail readily usable 24/7, if for no other reason than to keep bicyclists safe from route 7? Possibly even simply installed solar panels would create sufficient and safe lighting.
