Reducing lanes also increases the length of the column of cars on the main streets, especially during rush hour. It is already hard to go east-west across the traffic for both motorists and children going to school. I see this several times per week as I drive east and west through the North End. There are four schools where children have to go east or west.
And everyone going to a new downtown stadium (or even to a restaurant or store, or bank, lawyer, bookstore or library) will have to go on the interstate — interpreting Councilor Gaebler quoted in the newspaper. No thanks!
