Thank you, thank you, thank you Innerloopeders. We just confirmed from our source that the Bagby reconstruction will continue and talks to add a third lane of traffic to Bagby are gone. You all raised your voices and let the city know that you want a walk-able, urban Midtown… and it worked.
While Bagby is being designed to accommodate future growth (and there are still some minor tweaks/problems being worked out behind the scenes)… the threat of having a third lane of traffic to Bagby is gone. We have been told the project is moving forward as designed, and that the tweaks the city is now asking for are minor and should not have a dramatic impact on the project.
Again, thank you all for calling and emailing city officials. You had a direct impact on this and we’re excited to hear that the city is now sticking to the two-lane plan.
