Convert Franklin / Orleans Street from One-way to Two-way

Convert Franklin / Orleans Street from One-way to Two-way

Franklin / Orleans Street is currently one-way. As the roadway passes the west side of the Merchandise Mart it widens to become three lanes and speeding motorists take advantage and accelerate. This makes it dangerous for bicyclists and crossing pedestrians. Convert this roadway to a two-way street in order to lower speeds and calm traffic.

I have been studying roadway efficiency recently and this one is overdue for improvements that make it safer, allow for improved business action, and are conducive to traffic flow of all modes.

I cross this street all the time on foot, and it's like playing Frogger trying to time and view the oncoming traffic (and hope they see me).
