Columbus Avenue reverts back to one-way street

After nearly two years as a partial two-way street, Columbus Avenue from Harbor Drive to Fourth Street has returned to being a one-way street. This move comes on the heels of Grand Haven City Council on Monday night taking no action on whether it should be one-way or two-way. A proposal to turn it into a two-way road from Harbor Drive to Fifth Street had been on the City Council agenda, however Councilman Bob Monetza asked that it be removed due to a lack of support from other members of City Council.

Great! Can we now get rid of all of the four way stops on Washington? It is a nightmare trying to navigate vehicular AND pedestrian traffic down there with the current system.'s only going to get worse with more pedestrians! Is it the goal to discourage vehicles from going downtown altogether? Because at this point I can't STAND to go downtown with all of the confusion of who goes next and waiting for pedestrians at every intersection.


i commented on the article couple of weeks ago, was what deleted ? no brainier, return the street to the original condition, the it was 30 years ago, two way !!!!!!!


Just my opinion...this isn't news. Keeps it very "smalltown".....sorry.
