The results are in. It is time for a road diet on Barbur now!

This graph was put together by Michael Anderson from using data from ODOT’s traffic analysis of removing a car lane on Barbur.

The study also found that repurposing one car lane to create additional buffer space would:

-not increase traffic on surrounding neighborhood street

-only result in a 68 second delay through the entire corridor during peak rush hour times
