Road Diet: Life In The Fasting Lane


The road diet that went into effect last month in downtown Sioux Falls has not only slimmed-down Main Avenue, but it's also trimmed readings on speedometers.  The city of Sioux Falls reports the average traffic speed on Main Avenue has dropped 10-percent from 22 to 20 miles an hour.Lead-footed drivers are becoming a roadway rarity along Main Avenue in downtown Sioux Falls."Everybody seems to be careful and I haven't had any close calls or anything," driver Lee Ann Sievert said.The city's road diet reduced Main Avenue from three lanes to two, creating space for diagonal parking between 6th and 14th Streets.  Bump-outs at the intersections are designed to make the stretch more pedestrian-friendly.  But the new layout is also cutting down on speeding."That's always good because it's always dangerous trying to cross the street when people are trying to get to their destination quickly and now they have to think about cars backing-out and the traffic around them, so it does slow it down," Main Avenue resident Frank Boerema said.
