Redesigning Midtown...new design options from Great Streets Coalition!
Sunday afternoon members of the Great Streets Coalition gather for a little design workshop, with the idea being to present some less car centric options to both local merchants and RTC. I realized the presentation above requires a little introduction and comment, but you'll probably get the idea if you watch it a few times. Basically, we highlight the section of Midtown we're talking about (red line on the google map) and then give a few design options both for mid-block and intersections for each area (North end, Middle, and South End). It ends with some NDOT traffic counts for the entire area.
One really interesting point here, is that traffic has been decreasing even as the district has been growing like wildfire....so I guess it shows people really do already walk or bike to the area!? Such a novel concept!
