I'm not sure if there is enough going on at the moment to support only foot traffic because the area is still too spread out other than pockets here and there. Washington Ave. needs more bars, restaruant, or other entertainment if they truely want to shut down the street. It would be great to see street performers, food vendors, and art along the scene. I would like to see the area completely shut off from traffic at some point, but only if there is enough business to support the foot traffic. I do like the idea of allowing Pedestrian, Pedicabs, Taxi's, and Jitney's only. They just need to be careful with how they approach this idea while not scaring the people away. They will need a lot more parking for availble for example. Houstonians are also lazy and don't like to walk; I'm not sure people will be happy about paying for a taxi just to go 3/4 miles down the street, and they aren't going to walk down the road unless there are some sotps along the way. More traffic signals would just make things more congested. I make it out to Washington Ave. every now and then to drink at Taps, Dubliner, or maybe Brixx/Drinkery on occasion, but I definitely won't be going if I can't park on the street. And I'm too stubborn to pay for valet. Perhaps they could keep one side of the street open for parking, the two middle lanes for jitney, taxi, and pedicabs, and the other lane for pedestrian.
