Traffic Plan Offers Potential for Downtown Cleveland
"Handled in the most creative way, the studies would show how the city can blend private profit at the casino with the new movement to beautify downtown and make it more pedestrian-friendly.
If fumbled, however, the traffic plans could damage downtown for the same reason that it makes no sense to water a garden with a fire hose. Additional traffic can be a good thing; too much, especially in one spot, can be destructive."
Part of the proposal includes a plan to close off a portion of a street in a section called Public Square, but concerns over high levels of traffic leading to the new casino could hamper those plans.
