[ARCHIVED] Changes to Bay Street set to begin September 11

Date: September 7, 2016

From September 11 through October 9, several changes will take place on Bay Street from East Broad to Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. as part of a pilot program to test certain measures in an effort to improve traffic flow and increase pedestrian safety.

Temporary changes you can expect to see during the pilot:
• Street parking prohibited on Bay
• Travel lanes widened to standard width
• Installation of temporary bollards and chains on sidewalks
• Installation of traffic barrels in roadway to mark proposed medians

Alternative Parking
Recognizing that the prohibition of parking on Bay will be an inconvenience, the City has set up additional free parking at a surface lot located at Broughton Street, just east of East Broad. The Liberty Street Parking Garage free shuttle will expand its service to include this lot, and the hours of the shuttle will be extended to run continuously between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Parking will also be free in all City garages after 5 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday during the month-long pilot.

Truck Traffic
As part of the pilot program, truck traffic will be prohibited from traveling on Bay from September 25 to October 9, from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m.
