  1. The existing intersection is a cluster foulup. It requires the driver to look over his/her right shoulder to make a left turn off of north 21st into a heavily traveled road (Broadway/Division) which is a difficult and dangerous maneuver to pull off. It is dangerous for pedestrians also. The proposed layout is a tremendous improvement for traffic and pedestrians, except for the northbound right turn, I would put that under signal control also. And roundabouts, while increasing intersection safety for vehicles (eliminates right-angle crashes), they are a big step backwards for

  2. I hope they don't "fix" that intersection too much. I may be in the minority but I want this area to feel congested. I'm talking about Division from the naked people down to the Y intersection with Broadway, and the blocks around. Not only one of the few areas in town that is starting to have a genuine urban "enclosed street" feel, but this is the kind of area where cars need to slow down, there are a million pedestrians, sometimes impaired by adult beverages, and more pedestrians on the way soon, it's not a place to look at the streets in terms of "how many cars can we rush thru here?"

  3. ^That photo does remind me how much the old train shed is missing from the skyline. Too bad they couldn't reconstruct it.

  5. A long time vacant restaurant in Fayetteville looks like it has new life (besides Halloween Express)... I noticed a sold sign on the building as well as new temporary signage. The signs said San Miguel Mexican restaurant and bar I think as I was driving by at the time. Certainly some good news for the old Kirby's and Shorty Small's restaurant. For those of you newer residents the building is on the access road (Frontage) just east of College. Also just north of Panera Bread.

  6. I'd like to see a roundabout there. It's a funky intersection and there would be room for it.

  7. Still gotta believe that Dean and the Amp backers would not have met with nearly as much opposition if they had proposed a BRT loop around downtown, as I've described in previous posts. As far as valid arguments go (when you just look on points without speculative benefits) the people who oppose reducing lanes along West End have the upper hand (in my humble opinion). Everyone knows that West End is the most important East-West artery in town, and it picks up short and long commuter traffic. The presumed impact would (consequently) affect an enormous amount of people who wouldn't even conside

  8. And yet another article and photo set today in MLive. I don't know about anyone else, but I've seen enough urban renewal pictures to last a lifetime.

  9. If Columbus and Charlotte continue to add the same amount of people each year, then we should overtake them around 2018. Making us the 15th largest city. Of course a lot can change over time. Columbus (12,450/year) 2013: 822,553 2014: 835,003 2015: 847,453 2016: 859,903 2017: 872,353 2018: 884,803 2019: 897,253 2020: 909,703 Charlotte (18,420/year) 2013: 792,862 2014: 811,282 2015: 829,702 2016: 848,122 2017: 866,542 2018: 884,962 2019: 903,382 2020: 921,802 ---- 2025: 1,013,902. Just for craps and giggles I did the cities just above Columbus as well. Based

  10. I know this is old - I'm new the forums so I'm coming in a bit late. I took this outside Fourth Ward Park on April 2nd. http://instagram.com/p/mTFafEBBIo/ Then, I took this one from my seat at Fahrenheit tonight. http://instagram.com/p/oR4owMhBCI/

  12. It will get used A LOT!!! Even on days when there aren't any concerts, all that grass and open space will bring people out to play. It reminds me of Coolidge Park here in Chatty. I do agree that there should be lots of trees. Good trees... no flowering pears!
