||I support continuity in our streets, right now we have roads that go from two way to one way and back again - this doesn't serve anyone. I support using one way streets as tools to create efficient, balanced transportation system for all residents. Some of our one way streets do move traffic efficiently, but others are detrimental to wayfinding because they force you to circle multiple blocks to find your destination. I do not want to remove every one way street, but I would like to see many of our one ways reverted to two way in cases where they better serve local residents and businesses.
||I have visited many cities that's have one way systems ie: New York & San Francisco, many of them have these systems to move public transit and emergency vehicles efficiently to meet the needs of the community. It is clear that from our own traffic staff, that the road network that was designed in the lower city was designed at a time that accommodated a significant amount of employment in the lower city. Certainly, it is time to review whether the circumstances in which these one ways were created are still warranted.
||Two way streets are better for people and for communities. One way streets generally end up with cars driving faster. And as stated in the previous question I do support the conversion to two way streets.
