Library Lane's Width

Question Corner: July 2013

by Tim Athan

From the July, 2013 issue

Q. I was perplexed to see that Library Lane is designated on its street sign as a private road. Didn't municipal bonds pay for this project?

A. Yes, municipal bonds paid for both the underground parking structure and the new street that tops it. It's legally "private" only because the Downtown Development Authority chose to make it narrower than the minimum width of a public street. In practice, the designation just means that Library Lane is maintained by the DDA rather than the city.
