Would a skywalk be an option in the middle of Old town?
I just don't see how cutting the lanes in half will help. Adding a median and turn lanes will not help the truck drivers that need to get into the industrial places.
Traffic is either going to be so busy that no one will stop to let pedestrians cross or half of the traffic will divert into the residential streets behind riverfront and speed through there, causing residents to get upset and for them, annoyed with busy traffic. Granted their streets get busy as it is. But to add more??
I use riverfront daily. And with the amount of traffic there is now, I'm glad it is a 4 lane. wa
