City Council has received the corridor study and considered the options presented in that report. On December 17, 2017, City Council passed a resolution that supported in principle the conversion of Buttles Street, between Jerome Street and State Street, from 3 lanes to 2 lanes. This resolution provided for the longer data collection process known as the Buttles Street Road Diet Trial that is now underway. The trial started on May 14, 2018.
The decision of whether or not to permanently convert this section of Buttles Street to a 2 lane corridor has not yet been made. Similarly, the decision of what this section of Buttles Street would look like if converted to a 2 lane corridor has also not yet been made. Opportunities for public comment and input that will be considered before those decisions are made are currently underway, and will continue to be provided before City Council takes any position and makes any final recommendation to MDOT.
