"This situation stinks right now," said head of Washington Avenue Property Owners Association Tom Donatucci. Years ago. "Everyone who used Washington Avenue agreed...Washington Avenue needed fixing. The lanes were barely visible, and traffic laws seemed more like traffic suggestions. And short of on top of someone, you could park anywhere." The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission authorized a study to restripe and realign Washington Avenue in 2011, and by spring of 2014, a study proposing a realignment of Washington's lanes was finally finished. All that was left was for City Council to authorize the lane changes, buy some paint and let the Streets Department have at it. But a year later, nothing's changed. [PlanPhilly]
