CDOT to hold public meeting on two-way street study
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. —
The Chattanooga Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting Thursday to share information about its two-way street study. CDOT is looking into the possibility of converting several one-way streets downtown, and allowing two-way traffic.
The meeting will take place from 5:30-7:30pm on Thursday, December 7 at the Development Resource Center (1250 Market Street, Room 1A).
CDOT started its study in September. It is looking at 5th St., 6th St., 7th St., 8th St., Walnut St., Lindsay St., and Houston St.

In 2003, the city converted McCallie Avenue and Martin Luther King Blvd from one-way streets, to two-way streets.
In a blog post, CDOT administrator Blythe Bailey wrote, "Since the conversion, speeds and crashes along both McCallie and MLK have fallen considerably, so both streets have become safer."
