COLUMBIA — The Columbia Housing Authority will hold an open forum Tuesday so traffic engineers can present information on possible changes on Trinity Place and Allen Street.
The modifications are being considered because of the installation of a new pedestrian median and crosswalk on Providence Road, according to the Columbia Housing Authority website.
The proposed changes would alter the flow of traffic on Trinity Place and Allen Street.
The changes being considered are:
- Converting Trinity Place into a two-way street from Switzler Street to Pendleton Street.
- Installing two speed bumps and a crosswalk on Trinity Place.
- Converting Allen Street into a two-way street between LaSalle Place and Trinity Place.
A diagram of the plans can be viewed at the housing authority website.
Some of the plans might require City Council approval, and the city staff plans to send a report to the council in the coming weeks based on feedback at the meeting. Housing authority and Public Works staff will be on hand to answer questions.
The meeting will take place from 6:30 to 7 p.m. at the J.W. "Blind" Boone Community Center, 301 N. Providence Road. The entrance to the community center is on the northwest side of the building near Boone Drive. Parking will be available along Park Avenue and in the Boone Drive parking area.
