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.
