When a wide, high-speed road is redesigned to be more narrow, have slower traffic, and more space designated for bicycles, pedestrians, and plant material.
Did you hear? The city council approved the road diet for University Drive. They're going to take it down from 7 lanes to 4, reduce the speed limit, put a median down the center with trees, widen the sidewalks, and stripe bike lanes on both sides. It'll be so much better. I can't wait to see it finished!
