Downtown two-way traffic

For anyone who hasn’t heard, and for those who have heard and want more details, the following streets will become two-way around dawn on August 16th (they’re painting double yellow lines at 4am): Market, Merrimack, Central, and Shattuck (no, they’re not painting a line on the cobblestones, they’re using barrels and cones for the moment).

Palmer, Middle, and Prescott will remain one way.

The idea of all this is to make access to downtown businesses easier and to give more of a small town feel.  Personally, I thought our claim to fame was being the first industrial city in the US, but I suppose there’s something to be said for encouraging commerce.
