Ashland Votes to Keep Current Main Street Traffic Pattern
The Ashland City Council voted unanimously last night to keep the road diet traffic pattern on North Main Street. In the fall of 2012 North Main was restriped to turn its four travel lanes into two travel lanes with a center turn lane.
The realignment created more room to the edges allowing for the addition of bike lanes. Slightly more cyclists are using the street with bike lanes in place.
A fall survey by Southern Oregon University found that 48 percent of respondents thought the road diet had improved the street while 42 percent thought it had not.
