Consensus seems to support 183rd Street traffic diet; support divided over Gottschalk closure 

Public Works Director John Schaefer hosted two public hearings in September sharing the results of two traffic tests conducted in May and July. The hearings let Schaefer get community feedback on plans to improve safety on 183rd Street.

The first test in May simulated the traffic diet approach on 183rd Street, which was conducted over two weeks from Morgan Street west to Riegel Road.
