Public Hearing - White Street
CITY OF HANCOCK
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 21, 2017
7:30 P.M. AT CITY HALL
The City of Hancock’s City Council has scheduled a public hearing on Wednesday, June 21, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers, 399 Quincy Street, Hancock to receive comments on the status of keeping White Street one way up bound or returning White Street to two-way traffic.
Three years ago, in 2014, the City Council approved making White Street from Reservation Street to N. Lincoln Dr. (US 41) one way up bound only.
Prior to the 2014 decision, White Street had 24-hour vehicle counts of 2,339 down bound and 3,356 up bound for a total of 5,694 vehicles.
In 2015, the 24-hour vehicle count on the up bound lane was 4,825 an increase of 43% over the prior up bound lane count.
The City estimates that if White Street was reopened to two-way traffic, there would be a 24-hour vehicle count of between 7,325 and 8,000 vehicles.
Oral and written comments are welcomed.
