Cascade Considers Reducing Main Street to Three Lanes

City leaders in Cascade will consider reducing the town’s main street from four lanes to three. The community’s city council is expected to take up the issue at their meeting tonight. Currently, 1st Avenue is a four lane street – with two lanes going in each direction – for about a mile, between its intersections with Monroe and Cleveland streets. Under the proposal, the traffic pattern would be reduced to three lanes: one lane going in each direction, with a center turn lane. City leaders believe the change would increase pedestrian safety, especially near Cascade Elementary School. It would also allow the city to install bicycle lanes on each side of the street. The Cascade City Council meets at 6:00 tonight in the town’s City Hall.
