FYI; Some team members raised the idea of making Main Street a one-way. I broached the question with Stephen Turner. Let's just say it was a strong "not recommended." Here's what Jeff Speck had top say in his article about walkable cities; Protect the pedestrian. ("The safest roads are those that feel the least safe.") Here again, it comes back to driving. Jeff asserts that roadway "improvements" that facilitate car traffic – such as wider lanes or one-way streets – encourage higher speeds; thus, we should instead use narrow lanes and two-way streets. Intriguingly, he argues – as have other new urbanists – for stripping some roadways of signage and mode delineation. The idea is that, if drivers feel they might hit someone or something, they really will slow down or change routes.
