Neighborhood Proposal to Reverse Direction of One-Way Streets Prospect Pl and Washburn Pl
The City of Madison has received a request to reverse the one-way traffic flow on Prospect Place and Washburn Place. Currently, Prospect Place is a one-way street off of N Paterson St with traffic flowing southwest and Washburn Place is a one-way street with traffic flowing southeast. To get to either Prospect Place or Washburn Place, vehicles must first travel on N Paterson St. What is being discussed is whether to reverse the one-way traffic flow of these streets so that in order to get to these streets, vehicles would first turn off of E Gorham Street onto Washburn Place and then proceed to Prospect Place. Vehicles leaving this area would have to travel to N Paterson St and use the traffic signal at N Paterson Street and E Gorham Street.
The City of Madison Traffic Engineering is hosting a virtual public meeting to get feedback from residents who would be impacted by this project. A decision has not been made one way or another, City staff would like to hear from residents before determining how to proceed.
