16. Motion to Amend Code Sec. 7-1027, Appendix I, Section 211. to Make the 500 Block of East Liberty Lane One-Way Eastbound
Petitioner Cathy Stallings has requested that the 500 block of East Liberty Lane be made one-way eastbound for more effective traffic flow and to preserve access to homes that front the lane. The petition has support from surrounding property owners.
The Traffic Engineering Department has reviewed the petition, and determined multiple, simultaneous deliveries to Smith Brothers Butcher Shop are a regular occurrence, and block access for carriage house residents. At least one collision has resulted from large vehicles attempting to maneuver in opposite directions along the lane.
Recommend that Liberty Lane be established as a one-way roadway eastbound from Price Street to East Broad Street. Sanitation and the Savannah Fire are in agreement with this recommendation.
This requires an amendment to Code of the City of Savannah, Part 7-1027, Appendix I, Section 211. One-way Streets. (a) Generally
Mike Weiner, Traffic Engineering Director
