MEDIANS FOR MAIN BUSINESS STREETS

THE CONFLICTING NEEDS OF LOCAL AND "THROUGH" TRAFFIC IN SMALL CITIES ALONG MAIN BUSINESS STREETS IS REVIEWED; THEY ARE ALSO MARKED HIGHWAYS. WHEN 80 FEET OR MORE OF RIGHT-OF- WAY IS AVAILABLE, THE POSSIBILITY OF LANDSCAPED MEDIAN CONSTRUCTION IS EXPLORED. LANDSCAPE MAINTENANCE PROBLEMS ARE MENTIONED. TOTAL ROADWAY WIDTHS OF OVER 70 FEET ARE FOUND TO BE WORTHY OF CONSIDERATION FOR MEDIANS WITH LEFT TURN BAYS AND LANDSCAPING OR OTHER ESTHETIC TREATMENTS, INSTEAD OF THE HAZARDOUS AND CONGESTING ANGLE PARKING SO OFTEN USED ON SUCH VERY WIDE PAVEMENTS. /AUTHOR/
