For any city – like Cheyenne – planning for a downtown comeback – other cities successes offer perspective. One thing that’s worked is turning one way streets back two way.

Revitalization expert John Karras gives “12 strategies that can transform your city’s downtown,” and strategy number one is about one way streets. John links to examples including Charleston, SC. In fact, Clemson Universtity backed up John regarding the Charleston traffic.

Long ago streets were turned one way to move more traffic, but that wasn’t good for downtowns. Recovery didn’t emerge until the 1990s. The Clemson report is that two-way seems to equal functionality, but also increase sidewalk traffic and business access.
In 1956, Charleston’s major historic King Street was converted to one-way (as a speedier artery). It hurt the corridor, but when converted back to two-way traffic in 1994, the area returned to the hub it once was.

Maybe Cheyenne could also get the same new interest in its commercial buildings, and an increase in pedestrian traffic, etc…

It sounds convincing. Should Cheyenne re-visit its downtown streets?
