Three side streets to reverse direction

The City Council will introduce an ordinance Monday night to reverse three streets in anticipation of other traffic changes throughout downtown. Three side streets will become one-way streets heading toward Irving Street: East Cherry Street (photo above) and Coach Street (now one-way toward Main Street), and Poplar Street (currently two-way).
Final approval of the ordinance likely will come at a special meeting later this month if city officials hope to make the changes by April 1. The next regularly scheduled City Council meeting isn’t until April 14. A separate ordinance is expected to authorize traffic signalization and two-way traffic along Irving and Main streets.
