Brentwood I-64 Stop: Dierberg's Walkway

[Picture 1] A long walkway on one side, just wide enough for two people, leading you to the back of the store. Note the truck bay.
[Picture 2] There are no walkways on the otherside. There is auto traffic.

Less than 50 feet seperate the platform from the main parking lot.

Metro attempted to provide a more pedestrian friendly entrance to Dierberg's Development. The owners opposed it.

The entrance that exists did not even have the concrete pathway from the curb line to the Metrolink walkway inside the fence. The City of Brentwood put in the concrete path at Metro's request The owners of Dierbergs expressed outrage at that concrete. Dierbergs is afraid of commuter parking encroachment.

Thank you for the response!

Dierbergs concern seem reasonble enough; but once the new Park and Ride structure is built, it should move towards ease of use.

A grocery store, and all the other retail space, is a great ammenity to have on a transit system.
