COVID-19: Transportation Response Center
The street illustrated below depicts a 64-foot roadway within a 94-foot right-of-way.
Main street design should limit traffic speeds and create a narrower cross section with frequent, well-designed pedestrian crossings. In recent years, many main streets have been significantly improved through road diets and the conversion from 4 to 3 (or 6 to 5) lanes of travel with bike lanes and a center turning lane or median.
