Planners with the city’s transportation department say the $ 2 million conversion would help improve neighborhood livability.

"When you convert one way streets to two way you’re basically calming and slowing traffic down."

Department spokeswoman Linda Tucker says their Central City Two-Way Conversion Study finds switching to two-way would have significant impacts on bicycle lanes, air quality and noise.  

"However you have to balance that against the benefits of slowing traffic down in those areas."

Some of the streets that would be converted include J Street from 29th to Alhambra and N Street between 16th and 29th.

Monday night's meeting will be from 5 to 7:30 at the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria.
