I already looked at the Brady St. option and liked it. Could this be lobbied into consideration as well as a way to fix the Parkway off ramp speed problem perhaps with rumble strips, a painted crosswalk, and a stop sign?
Why would you take it offline? Just because they haven’t been implmented, doesn’t mean it’s not good to keep them out there. It’s a bunch of good proposals for projects. The trick is actually getting elected officials and / or city planners to implement them (and find funding for them).
I know some of that space in the Brady street proposal could be repurposed during the Port Authority’s BRT project.
In 2009, I worked at Ansaldo, essentially across the street from there, and was already contributing to this message board on a regular basis. There were other posts in the 2009-2012 timeframe discussig the pros and cons of various ways down the hill. You found one of the pists.
Hunch, the movers and shakers on that proposal have either moved away or moved on.
Yes, there are several ways to do it, some better than others, some issues more legal than technical.
