This is the latest development in the ongoing saga of the efforts by the Naples City Council with support from the Naples Pathways Coalition, to make US 41 in downtown Naples more pedestrian friendly.
From the Naples Daily News, 5/19/11, a few excerpts below:
“I think it will be better for business and connectivity and just make it a bigger and more enjoyable downtown experience,” said Michelle Avola, executive director Naples Pathways Coalition.
Proposals in the hybrid option call for a reduction of traffic lanes on U.S. 41 from six to four, as well as the addition of on-street parking and a bike lane.
