This would be for wide streets. Move all parking to center median. It would take the same amount of room. Excuse my bad photoshop, but this interesting idea came from a reader named Sam in the comments, who wrote:
‘What has to happen on the wide blocks in the west end – the parking has to move to the center of the street. Put a narrow divider in to separate north/south traffic, and shift the parking to be along that median. No parking/standing/stopping along the curbsides where the new mega-driveway aprons are. All parking in the middle, all spots now available to everyone, no “exclusive driveway” spots available to just the owners of the raised homes. No more issues with people taking parking spots that block people’s driveways. The travel lanes would be more narrow with this, but so what.
What do you folks think for the wide blocks? It would bring more parking, right?
