Bike lanes. Definitely a plus.Traffic plan changes are scheduled to take effect on Pleasant Valley Parkway on Tuesday, September 10. Motor vehicle traffic on the Parkway from Rosebank Avenue to Fallon Avenue will become one-way on both sides of the park median to improve safety for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians in Providence's Elmhurst neighborhood. . . As part of the joint project between the City of Providence and the Rhode Island Department of Transportation, curbing and landscaped traffic islands will also be installed to improve safety at the intersections of Pleasant Valley Parkway and Rosebank Avenue and Pleasant Valley Parkway and Fallon Avenue. In addition, a bike lane will be striped along Pleasant Valley Parkway, north of the park median from Rosebank Avenue to Jastram Street and south of the park median from River Avenue to Canton Avenue.
Pedestrian improvements, check.
How do people feel about the one way conversion? This is not a road I use a lot, although I think I've been on it once or twice, and not being in Providence at the moment, I can't personally go check it out. Do people feel this would cause speeding problems? Multi-lane one ways are not always highly recommended by all pedestrian and bike advocates.
Tawk amongst yerselves.
