A proposed one-way traffic pattern and back-in diagonal parking plan for East Castle Street in downtown Geneva is gone, replaced by a new vision that received good reviews from City Council last week.
The new design, discussed at Council’s Wednesday meeting, not only keeps the current two-way traffic pattern but restores parallel parking on both sides of the street.
Castle Street from Routes 5&20 to Main Street is being redesigned under a project getting a piece of the city’s $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative award. A portion of Exchange Street south of the Castle Street intersection also will be getting a new look.
The original proposal for East Castle Street called for one-way traffic going west and back-in diagonal parking. Both ideas, however, received significant pushback from Council and the public at a special meeting in May.
