East Gaines (Main to Gabbert) Painted as “One Lane Street”

October 13th, 2012 by

This week; painted parking lines on one-lane East Gaines St.

Last week; no lines painted on ?-lane East Gaines St.

East Gaines, from it’s intersection with Main St. to it’s intersection with Gabbert St., was re-painted with parallel parking spaces on both sides of the street, late this week.

Although it never ceased to be a “one lane” street, with no center line and no (clear) parking lines, most drivers have used it as a two lane roadway.

Please note the new markings, and be aware of the change in driving habits of other drivers.
