See plans for the Tyler/Polk two-way conversion this week

Tyler and Polk will become two-way streets sometime in the next few years.

City Council last year approved the move to restore the neighborhood thoroughfares to their previous form.

We know there are plans for a roundabout near Kidd Springs Park and a light near Page Avenue. Early plans also showed Tyler as a four-lane roadway with on-street parking allowed. Polk would have only two lanes with 5-foot bike lanes on either side of the street, an 8-foot parallel parking lane on one side and a 1.5-foot door buffer between bikes and parked cars.

See the city’s latest plans for the conversion from 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 22, at Kidd Springs Park Recreation Center.

    This is beyond stupid. A lot of people use these streets to go crosstown. This will push yet more traffic onto Hampton, the only unobstructed route left.

    And, as usual, let’s take something simple and sensible and make it into something complicated and drawn out. They’ve been talking about this for years. I’ll believe it when I see it.
