TRANSPORTATION
ND P Action Areas
ADAIR PARK -- PITTSBURGH
1969 Clearance (a) Additional setback should be required for the widening of Stephens,
McDaniel, and Rockwell Streets, since these streets are classified as twolane collectors. Two- lane collectors, as referred to in th is analysis, are
60 foot right-of-way, with 40 foot pavement as set forth in the City of
Atlanta Revised Street Cross Sections.
(b) Berckele Street and Middle Street between McDaniel Street and Coleman
Street were constructed in approximate I y 1968, to relieve a drainage problem.
It is, therefore, desirable, if possible, to r:rointain th is street as part of the
"redevelopment plan.
1969 Rehabilitation - Preliminary review shows no transportation problems.
1970 Clearance - Additional setback should be re9uired for the widening of Rockweli
Street.
1970 Rehabilitation - Preliminary review shows no transportation problems.

Major Thoroughfares
(a) The existing city strret classification does not recognize Allene-Lowndes
Street as a collector.
(b) Allene-Lowndes Street sho-1 Id not be classified as a collector, since it
is one block east of Murphy Street, which is classified as a collector
and prov ides access to the same land .
(c) The relocation of the intersection of Allene Street and Lillian Avenue
�is desirable and eliminates a dangerous interse ction. The extension
of All e ne Street nortb of Lillia n Avenue provides only a slight increase in access to the area and would mainly serve the park, which
has adequa te access without the extension, i.e., we recommehd relocation of Allene Street from Pearce Street to Lillian Avenue, as
shown but not from Lillian to Lowndes.
2. Minor Streets - Preliminary review indicates all changes desirable.
Pittsburgh
I. Major Thoroughfares (a) If Rockwell and Fletcher Streets are improved to collector standards,
it will not be necessary for Mary or Arthur to be improved to these
standards.
(b) A grade-separation at McDaniel Street, and the railroad , is desirabl ~ and feasible as an underpass . This will affect adjacent land
use and needs additional study.
(c) Consideration shou Id be given to the widening of University on the
north if additional right of way is not availab le from post offi ce
site on south si_d e to provide for four lane arterial.
(d) Developing McDanie I Street and Hubbard Street into one-way pairs
between Gardner Street and Fletcher Street was mentioned by the
consultant and has some merit, particularly since it would allow
the two stree ts to take on collector status without cl e aring existing
comme rcial on McDanie l.
2 . Minor Streets (a) Bender and We lch Stree t a c cess to Shelton- Ste phens Stre e t sh ould
not be a !lowe d . The se stree ts should conne ct into Humphries Stree t ,
whic h prov ides access to She lton- Ste phe ns Street, or some o ther
solu tion .
(b) The stree ts east of McDan ie l Stree t and north of G a rdner Stree t
should be a ba ndone d , a nd pri va te access shou Id be prc·1ided to
the a d jacent high densi ty reside ntia l .
(c) If condition of struc tu re s warrant c le arance, Cohe n Street be twe en
We lch Street and Col eman Stree t , Middle Street between Beryl
Street and Humphries Street, and Hubbard Street between Roc kwe 11
�Street and Gardner Street should be abandoned. If these
streets are abandoned, it will allow for the accumulation of
larger parcels for proposed land use while adequate access
is maintained.
(d}
Access into University Avenue from the north should be
limited (close Welch, Sims, Ira , etc. )
and remaining
access should align with exits and entrances to the post
office.
(e)
West Avenue should not intersect with University Avenue due to
its position relative to the freeway ramps. Problem of industry
would need study.
(f}
The Fortress Avenue railroad crossing should be maintained and
signals shou Id be considered.
(g)
Traffic Engineering wou Id Iike the intersection of University Avenue
and Pryor Street improved on the northeast corner.
We are in agreement with the classification and treatment of streets in the above
areas unless commented upon.
The improvement of streets to the city street classification standards needs
additional study in relationship to the clearance or non-clearance of adjacent land.
