Overhead view of proposal, Dana becomes 2-way from Bancroft to Dwight mirroring the traffic of Bowditch. Dwight briefly becomes 2 way to allow traffic to seek street parking or passage to the parking garage by going around the plaza. Buses will follow the new path of traffic.
Telegraph is a plaza from Dwight to Bancroft with brief interruptions to passing perpendicular traffic. Deliveries can be made from trucks parked at intersections, and inventory carted to businesses.
The plaza will have a bike lending program and increased bike parking. There will be bike taxi services for disabled, elderly, or those traveling with small children. The traffic flow redirects cars around the plaza, and makes drivers more aware of the act of driving, which in turn will discourage many people from taking their cars to the plaza in the first place. Between the alterations in traffic flow and the increased bicycle ease-of-access, a substantial amount of people will chose to walk, bike, or take a bus to the plaza.
