Title 040-DPAI-AIA-Page 30
Description definite need for an internal circulation system to overcome this distance and to strengthen and integrate the area between. In additition, the State Capitol area, Sears, City-County complex, Temple Square, a new civic auditorium, parking on the edges of Downtown, close-in residential, and all areas of major employment need to be linked to the shopping area. The other major problem for the pedestrian in Downtown Salt Lake City is the great width of the streets. The physical barrier of crossing 90 ft. of traffic is obvious; the extreme width also constitutes a psychological barrier in that it destroys the much needed linkage between the two sides of a shopping street. As a result of both of these, people tend to do most of their shopping on one side of the street instead of crisscross ing. For greater comparison, this is evidenced by foot traffic being three times heavier on the busier side of the major shopping streets. A way must be found to "narrow" the street for the pedestrian, both physically and psychologically, without prohibiting the necessary vehicular use of the streets . -30-
