OANA Proposed A Fourth Design Option

It would consist of a curbside bus lane, that would only be enforced during rush hours, and allow parking and truck loading during off peak hours. DOT thought illegal parking would be an issue, however, we think this might still be a viable option, especially as bus delays are minimal during off-peak hours.
