Any thoughts on the downtown streets being turned back into two way traffic? :S

Thanks. I thought I would give it a try again and see what was going on.

Hey there! Welcome back!

I'm a little worried about the two-way traffic. It "shouldn't" be a big deal, but I've seen people drive in this town for far too long!! Some people just now figured out that some streets were one-way -- now we gotta switch them back!!

Yes, I'm scared!

I just noticed in the title I put 'one' way. I changed it to 'two' way, but it didn't change in answers already posted.

Anyway, I too am concerned about it being two way again. I can't figure out how they are going to make it two way at the corner of Main and Gilmer.

We'll all have to be careful for sure. I remember when they changed it from two-way to one-way. My grandfather refused to drive to the square after that, in some sort of protest!! He'd go way out of his way to avoid it! We humans are funny about change aren't we?

On another note, I'd much rather support changing the service roads back to two-way. I know, I know, it's not gonna happen. I'm just sayin'.

I certainly agree with you on this one!

If a petition would do any good, I'd sure sign it. I think, though, once the roads went one-way - it can't be changed back.

FYI -There is an interesting discussion on this subject on Facebook under 'Remember In Sulphur Springs'.

I was just on FB last night looking at the Remember in Sulphur Springs page. Here's the discussion:

There is an attempt to protest two-way traffic on the actual "square". Not the streets that come onto the square, like Jefferson, Oak Ave, and Gilmer. The question is: Was there EVER two-way traffic on the square itself. The consensus is NO.

So, my question is, does the new plan propose two-way traffic on the square itself? Will it work? This is a new thought for me. I'd only been thinking of the streets becoming two-way.

i can't honestly see how 2 way traffic on the square would work. there's not even enough room for proper 2 lanes of traffic, are there?

I can only hope they're going to make it WIDE enough for two-way traffic, unlike the much too narrow 1/2 block demo-derby "Main?" Street. Some one should call City Hall and tell them apparently Kenya is missing more than one Village Idiot.... :S
