Yes, please!

The Free Press's John Gallagher reports on an overdue plan to add bike lanes, wider sidewalks, and landscaping to Detroit's main thoroughfares. As Gallagher writes, "Detroit's main streets make good highways but lousy neighborhoods." Gratiot is great for driving -- lots of lanes, no traffic -- but it's no good for pedestrians or business. Narrowing the main roads will "recapture Detroit's cityscape for the people who actually live here."
