Jackson Town Council Monday night took action to hire an engineering company to redesign the traffic patterns on Deloney Street along the north side of the town square in hopes of enhancing vehicle and pedestrian traffic there.  Mayor Mark Barron says the intent of the project is to make the street one-way eastbound and widen the sidewalks there to help facilitate better traffic flow.  He says this is a one-pronged approach where the city will expand the boardwalk along the northern perimeter of the town square to a ten-foot boardwalk and slightly expand the boardwalk in front of the stores and make the street a one-way street.  The parking pattern would remain angled parking on both sides of the street.  Barron explains that it is a lot easier to turn onto Deloney Street from Cache than it is to pull out of Deloney Street onto Cache. A second project which will get under way in April will involve Cache Street from just south of the town square to Kelly Street.  Barron says the street is to be repaved and narrowed slightly to be able to enhance the sidewalks .  He says it is an important pedestrian corridor from downtown Jackson to the Center for the Arts and on to Snow King which gets a lot of use.  However, he says the sidewalks there are inadequate. Barron says the intent is to have both of the projects completed in time for Memorial Day Weekend.
