Convert the one-way street into a two-way street with one travel lane in each direction. Bidirectional travel reduces vehicular speeding as drivers must be cautious and aware of the oncoming traffic. See: Travel Lanes.
Two-way streets increase overall network connectivity but intersections must be carefully designed to minimize conflicts. Mitigate turn conflicts using tight corner radii, leading pedestrian intervals, and turn prohibitions for motor vehicles.
Replace angled parking with regulated curbside parking to provide increased space for sidewalks.
Widen sidewalks to accommodate trees, utilities, and commercial activity while ensuring a clear pedestrian path.
Install curb extensions to shorten pedestrian crossing distances and improve sightlines; lengthening the curb extension creates new public space for curbside amenities and street vendors. See: Sidewalk Extensions.
Use curbside parking lanes that are flexible zones to accommodate boarding for small collective transit and taxis, dedicated cycle or motorcycle parking, and tree pits.
Create a safer people-centered environment with sidewalk-aligned crosswalks, visible and legible markings, and added public amenities.
Improved pedestrian zones and drop-off areas are beneficial to local business establishments.
