Transit issues Fewer gaps for peds/vehicles crossing or entering main street Turning movements Diversion/cut thru traffic: parallel routes? (e.g. Claremont Avenue example)

traffic calming Pedestrian/bicyclist safety But concerns over Possible congestion Emergency vehicle responses Fear of change

17 Lessons Learned CONCLUSION:
When Considering a Road Diet Proposal, Make Sure You Have a Process To: Evaluate your proposal & identify impacts (technical study, LOS, parking, etc.) Communicate the details, inform the public and policy makers To receive feedback and answer questions To evaluate the statutory requirements To formally approve proposed road diet
