East Gaines Marked as “One Lane Traffic, From Square to GabbertJanuary 29th, 2014 by Joe Burgess
For years, there has been public confusion about whether East Gaines St, from Cockrell’s to the Chamber of Commerce, is “one or two lane traffic”.
It became more complicated when AHTD accidentally painted white stripes there, 5 years ago. They quickly reacted by putting black paint on top of the white paint’ but that still somewhat appeared as 2-lane markings to some drivers.
Monday, they again attempted to correct the situation, by “roto-milling” the well worn paint away, as shown above.
MPD Chief Eddy Deaton has confirmed that this area is One Lane Traffic, until it crosses Gabbert Street, and urges drivers to use caution there.
