Traffic Nightmare on Elm Street Solved?

So this is great. You know those speed bumps that Hawker reported were coming to Elm Street?

Well, it looks like it's going to be a while. According to The Department of Transportation, work orders are so backed up that residents shouldn't expect the bumps to be built until the spring of 2008. DoT was hopeful that it might be sooner, but not optimistic. DoT has also made a recommendation that Elm be one-way southbound, but this would require community approval first.

I don't see how making Elm one way will help anything. And as a resident of Elm I am not for it.

Yucky! As a fellow Elm-er, I agree. If anything is needed soon, it is a stop sign on the Avenue at Elm, to make turning NORTH onto it quicker, and to slow down people flying between Roland and Chestnut.

Also live on Elm below 36th and speed bumps are needed to slow the idiots. What would the benefit of a one way be?

I'm with you on the stop sign. When I was a lad in Hampden, that intersection scared we kiddies:) That ugly diagonal parking makes crossing that street by car or on foot even harder now.
