Narrowing Streets To Improve Downtown Business District

Huntington, W. Va. is narrowing a major thoroughfare through its business district in order to make the area more appealing to shoppers.

"After decades as a high-speed, four-lane, one-way street, 3rd Avenue from 13th Street to 7th Street will become a slow-speed, two-way street shortly before Pullman Square opens. The idea behind Pullman Square is to make the entire downtown friendly to pedestrians, and people don’t like crossing streets as wide as 3rd Avenue is now," according to the Herald-Dispatch.
