Agreed. If we must continue to tolerate the one-way streets in Midtown, we need to continue to make them consistent (and moderate, ie <5 lane) widths and maximize sidewalk space. Juniper goes from three lanes to four starting at 10th Street, and by the time it reaches North Avenue it's at five lanes. West Peachtree goes from four lanes up to five at 12th Street for no apparent reason.
That's why these streetscape projects are important. The default in Midtown is that every bit of pavement that can be used by cars is
used by cars. With increasing foot traffic, it's simply not safe to have such limited sidewalks in so many areas.
