College and Ross

Ross St is a tiny one-way residential street which joins College in a T-intersection.

As you can see from these photos, taken over 24 hours after a major snowfall, Ross St is almost twice as wide as it needs to be.

Here’s the intersection as it is now. It's a one-way street, 7m wide—that’s two very generous lanes. Here’s a Streetmix of Ross St as it is now. One lane is used for parking until the intersection, when it allows two cars to simultaneously exit. This capacity is unnecessary—Ross is a minor residential street.

A more appropriate treatment for this intersection would be a curb extension, including protection for the bike lane at the intersection. The reclaimed space could be used to plant street trees, as in this intersection in Copenhagen.
