Title Page 7
Description HOW PEOPLE MOVE AROUND IN DOWNTOWN Street Types There are three principal types of streets proposed for Downtown. State Street and West Temple will be main north-south streets, especially with State the major connection to the State Capitol area. These should be tree-lined boulevards, with emphasized pedestrian crosswalks and canopies. Fourth South could ultimately become treelined also, if 5th and 6th , South were made the major east-west route across the south of Downtown. South Temple should be a very special thing, a grand boulevard of trees and magnificent buildings all the way out to the university; care should be taken to preserve this character. These four boulevard streets would together form a frame for Downtown which people would be aware of as they moved through it. With the development of peripheral landing spots and escape routes around the hard core, the east-west streets between South Temple and 5th South would become merely linkages or shuttle streets between the two sides of Downtown for those vehicles having to cross over. There would be canopied pedestrian crossings at the midblocks as well as parking bays. Service and parking access into the block interiors would occur primarily off of these streets. Main Street would become highly oriented to the pedestrian, although necessary vehicular traffic would still be permitted. Special treatment--pedestrian crossings, canopies, planting, sidewalk activities, etc. --is discussed in detail further on in this report. On the periphery, 2nd East would be a minor linkage between landing spots, and 1st and 2nd West will be high capacity circulation routes between the freeway approaches. Internal Circulation System The need for an internal circulation system has been noted in several instances. The "shuttle bus" system as here proposed would accomplish several things: 1. It would most importantly overcome the distance for shoppers between the two main shopping anchors at the two ends of the shopping core. -7-
