    I live in San Jose between two of the dieting streets, and I’m really glad for this news. Currently 3rd and 4th streets serve to bring cars between the freeway and downtown at high speeds. They are also home to some of San Jose’s densest residential developments, and because of their proximity to sjsu, see high pedestrian and biking volumes.

    The streets don’t feel very safe now, but I look forward to gradual but substantial change in the quality of life in my neighborhood due to these changes.
