Studying One-Way Streets

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Officials in Iowa City and studying whether to allow two-way traffic on what are now one-way streets.
   The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports (http://icp-c.com/GWNWdy ) the county's Metropolitan Planning Organization has nearly completed a study of Governor Street and likely will make a recommendation to the City Council next month about whether to make part of the street two-way.
   City transportation planner John Yapp says analysts also have begun taking a look at other streets.
   Yapp says one-way streets move traffic efficiently but tend to increase vehicle speeds and be confusing for visitors.
   Iowa City returned two-way traffic to a two-block stretch of Washington Street last year and has received a positive response.
   City Council member Terry Dickens, who owns a jewelry store on Washington Street, says customers like the change.
