Avenue of the Cities Might Be Getting An Upgrade
When you find yourself driving along Avenue of the Cities, is it easily navigated? If not, you just might like these proposed changes.
According to the Quad-City Times, Avenue of the Cities might turn into a two-lane road with a middle turn lane. The idea came about – and was widely supported at a public workshop last week over at the Moline Public Library.
As of right now, this is just a suggestion. It may or may not make it into the final presentation to the city, but that's still a few months away.
I'll admit, I don't drive along Avenue of the Cities enough to know how a middle turn lane would affect the traffic. But, according to the Times' report, "pedestrian safety is a big issue and the walk-ability of Avenue of the Cities has not been great historically."
What do you think? Will a re-route of the Avenue make a big difference?
