|NOTE the new expanded curbing at Main and Westport
to slow traffic from Main to Westport. Also from
"Westport was originally designed for pedestrians and horses, hence the narrow streets and the zero lot line buildings. It’s roads were never intended to be a high-speed thoroughfares or arterial roadways for automobiles. At best, the narrow historic streets of Westport could function as low-speed neighborhood streets.
"With the addition of four-way stops at the Westport
Road intersections with Pennsylvania Avenue and Mill Street, attempts are
being made to bring this historic roadway back to the pedestrian focus
it had lost when thousands of cars were speeding through just to avoid
catching the next traffic light. A vehicular trip eastbound or westbound
on Westport Road will now take longer with the recent traffic calming changes.
At the same time, pedestrians will now find it easier – and safer – to
cross Westport Road. Through traffic just trying to move from east to west
across midtown are encouraged to consider alternative routes such as 39th
Street, 31st Street, 43rd Street or 47th Street."
