What happened to the idea of returning traffic to Main St.??
I kow the "snooze" ran a few stories on this last year, but I haven't heard anything since.
The AM&A's Christmas windows on the Remember When thread had me remembering the crowds fighting the cold and traffic to shop downtown. Shopping and lunch on Main was a yearly ritual for me in High School for Christmas every year. Those stores, Bergers, AM&A's, etc were wonderful. It's no secret that the Metro Rail, while useful, killed the downtown shopping district on Main St.
How stupid is it that this is not being persued?? It's not hard, either. Move the rails to the outside, and the traffic back into the center of the street, or something.
Why do all improvements to this city have to happen in slow motion?
