    I would love to have Street Car Service from Hollywood down Broadway—UNLESS they also decide to take a lane away to provide street space and “help” businesses. What about us residents who love to drive, bike and shop on Broadway? I would use a street car line and do commute via bus, but only two lanes would guarantee congestion. I hope they make a sensible choice and abandon the ill fated two lane solution and do the Street Car line. Get real planners, Broadway is a commuter corridor as well as a business district. Do create a Street Car line, but don’t combine it with an incompatible Broadway plan.

    Broadway has two lanes each way over the River, it has two lanes each way east of 24th, so what’s the problem with retaining just those two lanes each way through the heart of the commercial district that serves thousands of neighbors?
    Commuters can relocate, chose to use modes other than driving alone, or find another route (I-84) that is more appropriate.
    Two lanes makes for a much safer pedestrian environment, and converting the extra third lane to a protected bikeway will make the Broadway/Weidler District really accessible to all. Streetcar can be easily accommodated on the left of the two remaining traffic lanes.
