The preferred alternative remains a one-way, eastbound Lighthouse with two general traffic lanes and one lane dedicated to bicycles, buses and emergency vehicles.
City traffic engineer Rich Deal contends that controlling traffic speeds on city streets is easier with one-way traffic than with two-way, and cited Alvarado Street in downtown Monterey as an example.
But Alvarado street is not a main road into Pacific Grove. Reducing four lanes to two will not help ease traffic.
This is beginning to sound like a “Sustainable City” scheme, much like to stupid idea to reduce Pine Avenue to two traffic lanes in P.G. with exaggerated bicycle lanes no one needs. Until they take your freedoms away.
