Cedar / Exchange Two Way Conversion Study

Akron, Ohio
This project evaluated the conversion of Cedar Street and Exchange Street (major east-west arterials) from a one-way pair to two-way streets. While the study ultimately determined that conversion of the roadways was not the preferred alternative, it concluded that their operation and character could be improved by implementing a road diet to reduce vehicle crashes and operation. As a result of the study, GPD Group was able to secure $5 million in safety funds.
