New designs and renderings have been released for the northern-most section of 6th Street's "road diet." The plan considers trimming traffic lanes from four down to two, adding green bike lanes and widening sidewalks. Some parking spaces will be eliminated to make room for extra pedestrian space and possible features (PDF alert) like art installations, bike corrals, planter boxes and leaning rails may be incorporated. Estimates for the work range from $2-5 million with the 16-18 month environmental review process expected to begin in January. No timetable has been set for construction.
