    I support changing Colorado to one-way vehicle traffic, but I think the picture that they show is misleading. It would be great if there were a total of three cars on Colorado in the four blocks between 5th and Ocean. But that’s not what it’s going to look like: the area will be packed full of stinky cars with aggressive drivers in stop-and-go traffic, just as it is now, and the planning docs should reflect that.

    Hopefully this will be a stepping stone towards closing Colorado to private vehicles altogether. Removing cars from the area entirely would give us another much-needed pedestrian space (the Promenade, while great, is not enough) and would speed the flow of bus traffic.
