Two-Way Traffic on Calvert?
Calvert Street in Charles Village

The city of Baltimore has set aside $140,000 to study the pros and cons of opening up Calvert Street (which runs north) and St. Paul  Street (which runs south) to two-way traffic.

The change would affect the streets from Lafayette in Station North to University Parkway at the edge of Oakenshawe.

The main goal of the  change, according to WJZ, would be to slow traffic on those streets (as unnecessary as that may seem to rush-hour drivers!) to increase pedestrian safety.

Whaddya say? Is it practical? Should we do it?
