A New Direction for Mason Street
Off the Rails Design Competition: The redesign of Mason Street between West Laurel Street and West Mulberry Street includes several key structuring moves:
1. Traffic lanes are reduced to one lane in each direction, which will be shared by buses and cars.
2. The number of curb cuts and alley access points off Mason Street is reduced.
3. The multi-use Mason Trail located south of West Laurel Street is extended northward, and transitions into a dedicated two-way bike lane for cyclists.
4. By placing both bike lanes together on the east side of the street, more space is afforded on the west side to devote to the public realm.
