Title Page 6
Description Bypass Routes To alleviate unnecessary cross-traffic within the Downtown, bypass routes should be developed around the north and south ends. It has been proposed that 5th and 6th South be developed as major east-west routes from at least 7th East to where they tie into the freeway approaches. Fifth South could logically extend even further east to where it is already a major artery coming in from Wasatch-Foothill Blvd. Eighth South has also been proposed already for development in the same manner; this would help terminate and define that part of the secondary core most closely allied with the hard core itself. On the north edge, North Temple is already the major local collector from the west, and 2nd and 3rd Avenues could be further developed out to 7th East. There is a need for a route behind the Capitol, from 7th East across the canyon and tying into both Victory Road and the 5th North freeway approach. It is important that no major route cut across directly in front of the Capitol, since this would further isolate it from Downtown. Landing Spots Once autos and other public carriers have delivered people to the Downtown area, they should be able to shed their vehicles easily and with a minimum of travel inside the Downtown. A system of landing spots must be developed, principally at the edges of the hard core. There are three types of landing spots needed for autos. Workers and others who park all day need long term parking on the edges of the hard core where it is less expensive; the internal circulation system would bridge the distance between landing spot and place of employment within the core. For shoppers and business people, short term parking is needed closeby the shops and places of business; these can occur within the block interiors as they already do in some degree. In addition, there are "special generators" such as the L. D. S. Church complex, the proposed Convention Center, government centers, etc. , which require additional concentrations of parking in addition to normal long term requirements along the periphery. Public carriers would also have their landing spots: the railroads could possibly combine their operations in one of the two existing terminals; inter-city buses coming off the freeway would land at the proposed Transportation Center on the west edge; airport limousines and helicopters would land people at the Transportation Center, Visitor Center, and Downtown hotels. -6-
