    • Develop measures that reconnect the Downtown to the Bayfront using the most effective and efficient means with an emphasis on pedestrian comfort. This goal requires changing the current relatively high-speed, pedestrian-unfriendly character of US 41.

    • Improvement measures shall be phased as short-term (0 – 3 years) as well as long-term measures (3+ years).
