Daniel Morgan Avenue “Road Diet”

Location

Organization

South Carolina Institute of Medicine and Public Health. Partners: South Carolina Department of Health & Environmental Control, Spartanburg Area Transportation Study, Partners for Active Living

The HIA examined the potential health impacts of the proposed re-striping and “road diet” of a downtown Spartanburg arterial road, Daniel Morgan Avenue (DMA). A road diet is a technique to reduce the number of lanes on a roadway to provide safe space for pedestrians and cyclists. The proposed road diet in Spartanburg would reduce the roadway to one travel lane in each direction with a center turn lane and the freed-up space would be used to provide a physically separated sidewalk for pedestrians and a physically separated bicycle lane for cyclists.
