    Of course ABC completely misses the real point of metering: increased turnover. Nope, they lament the end of a “tradition”.

  • RichardC

    To be fair to the Hayward merchants, the road project in question is converting their downtown streets into a five-lane one-way loop to speed traffic through to the freeways. I’d want to keep the parking, too.

    Very different than removing parking to actually create a nicer downtown environment or improve conditions for non-auto modes.

  • Prinzrob

    Oh, but they put a bike lane to the far right of the five-lane, one-way loop, so now it’s a “complete steet”, right?

  • The Hayward Loop is one of the results for the cancellation of a new freeway, so the alternative is far worse.

  • mikesonn

    “Adding highway lanes is like adding belt loops to deal with obesity.”

    So yeah, the alternative doesn’t have to be more automobile throughput…
