Is this in the works? I can't imagine the River's District plan can reach its goal of being pedestrian friendly with Macleod the way it is.Wondering if the area could be reconfigured to be more pedestrian oriented :
-change Macleod to be 2 way, 5 lanes partly on top of buried LRT line with the center lane operating contra-flow
-repurpose 2nd street to be two way with on street parking, and wide sidewalks terminating at the Repsol Center (no longer a conduit for Macleod southbound)
Centre Street handles a fraction of the traffic MacLeod Tr does, Centre Street is kinda weird in that regard as it seems like it should be busier.Yeah but so is Centre Street and its nowhere near as nightmarish as any section of Macleod between the tracks and... well... the southern border of the city.
Not really. Macleod currently has 3 lanes northbound and 1st has 3 lanes southbound. If the Red Line were buried, Macleod could expand to 5 lines, offering 3 in the flow of rush hour. The Macleod underpass at the tracks would likely need to widen to accommodate the extra lanes. The intersection of Macleod and 7th would face extra stress unless the Red Line tunneled under 7th.I seriously doubt they will ever change MacLeod to 2 way, that would be a traffic nightmare. The rest of the district can be pedestrian friendly, but this will always be a commuter street I think.
