One Way out of Traffic


One-way streets for Bellevue?

The city of Bellevue is considering converting 106th and 108th avenues northeast to one-way streets to accommodate increasing traffic.

According to the city's traffic modeling, one-way streets would help the flow of vehicles through downtown. The two avenues would change to one-way from Main Street to Northeast 12th Street, with 108th Northeast flowing southbound and 106th northeast northbound.

However, Nancy LaCombe, the project's manager, said those plans are under analysis and may change.



It sounds like a good idea to me. Converting Roads to One-Way in SimCity 4 significantly reduces congestion and increases the average speed of traffic. It also helps with air pollution. I don't see why it wouldn't have the same impact in Bellevue, WA.

Of course, it is the Puget Sound area, so nothing will happen until they have 3 public votes and resolve all the outstanding Salmon lawsuits.

Hello

I was looking for ways that would help me get free traffic to my Blog. While I was searching on Blogger, I found your Blog. I know it does not have to do with getting traffic but I really enjoyed reading it, great job!! In fact I have my own Blog and I get a lot of free traffic from http://www.autosurfmonster.com , If I were you I would submit this Blog to them so thousands of others can see it for free. Well, I will add your Blog to my favorites and I look forward to all the updates.
