Traffic Movement

Car traffic through downtown Sidney has continued to increase over the past decade. There is a concern when Beacon Avenue is two way, there will be increased traffic congestion. This is true and important to making downtown Sidney more accessible. Increased traffic congestion is good because:
• it is safer as cars traveling in both directions, one lane each way, will have to slow down and be more careful.
• slower cars means less accidents, easier street crossings for people and cars.
• cars looking to just cross downtown will use alternate quicker routes.
