In other business, the City Council approved spending $515,000 on a contract with engineers Burgess and Niple for road improvements Downtown.
The changes will include on-street parking on N. High Street, converting Front Street to two-way traffic north of Broad Street and reducing the number of travel lanes on Broad to allow for multi-use paths and other pedestrian features. The contract also calls for a review of on-street parking throughout Downtown.
The upgrades will create “more commerce and better quality of life,” said Councilwoman Eileen Y. Paley, the legislation’s sponsor.
