It’s called the Central City Two-Way Conversion project and it would cost $3 million. What’s the goal? 

"Enhancing neighborhood livability through street conversion while balancing many of the other objectives such as continued revitalization of downtown and having a balanced transportation system."

Hector Barron with the city’s transportation department says turning one-ways into two-ways can help with traffic calming and encourage more biking and walking. But some business owners are skeptical about the plan and say one-way streets are best for getting large chunks of traffic to the freeway.

Some of the streets that would be converted into two-ways include J Street from 30th to Alhambra and N Street from 16th to 28th. Thursday night's meeting is from 5:30 to 7 o’clock at the Sacramento Convention Center.
