Reducing the number of lanes on Grand is a bad idea, has anyone seen the traffic on those roads now with the existing number of lanes?


This has been proven false.

* 4 to 3 road diets have been shown to actually move the same amount of traffic, just slow down and at more steady rate.

* Less stop and go traffic - more continious flow

* Dedicated turning lanes mean cars are out of the way of main traffic flow

* Having a 4-lane highway (as we have now) invites traffic off the Turnpike as a route to cut to the Holland Tunnel

* City is growing and there's nothing left to pave
