Washington One Way
by Ken Leland


February 06, 2005

Whether it was Tom, Lew or Marty's idea about eliminating the One Way section of Washington Street, it is way overdue in any case. I'm not sure the reason for it in the first place, I assume it was a throwback to the days when there was a skating rink there, but that's been gone for 30 years or so. There's already a traffic light at the intersection, one could easily be added facing uphill. It would also have the added benefit of freeing up exit from the parking lot at the corner of Washington and Tongass Avenue. No more having to exit uphill, left on 1st to Jefferson in order to make a turn South on Tongass.
