It seems to me that if Charlie Duff and others want to attract 10,000 new families to the city they are putting the cart before the horse in terms of enticements ( "Two ways about it," July 16). How about there being something to go to on foot or bike along the Calvert and St. Paul street corridors they are talking about calming by making two-way? Safety issues aside, two-way is great if there is a reason to slow down. At this point, with few exceptions, there isn't. And if there should be in the future, pedestrian traffic is in no way dependent on the direction the cars are moving.

WHY IS THE NEW Midtown Community Plan a must-read document? Because it challenges all the traffic arrangements that have choked the Charles, St. Paul and Calvert Street corridors since the 1950s. And because it proposes radically different traffic patterns to make the area more livable. The Midtown Community Plan, drafted by Charles B. Duff Jr., recommends de-emphasizing St. Paul street as a southbound thoroughfare. Instead, it spells out ways to use the Jones Falls Expressway more efficiently and seeks to divert more downtown-bound commuter traffic to Guilford and Greenmount avenues.

This 100-year-old Baltimore County farmhouse has always been warm and homey. The current owners, however, found that they needed more room, and better traffic patterns throughout the house. The dining room had become control central, that organizational hub where meals are planned, bills paid and gatherings orchestrated.To the rescue came architect Jeffrey Penza of Penza Baukhages Architects. His solution: a kitchen addition that also included a substantial mudroom to provide an axis for traffic control, as well as a butler's pantry, a family room and, most important of all, a small office area.

The Harford County Department of Public Works has announced a change in the direction of traffic flow for Patterson Mill Road. Effective on or about Wednesday, Feb. 13, the one-way traffic flow on Patterson Mill Road will be reversed and traffic will be able to drive from the bottom of Patterson Mill Road toward Wheel Road. Traffic will no longer be permitted to enter Patterson Mill Road from Wheel Road. Because of some confusion with the current one-way traffic flow, this change in direction is warranted and will have the added benefit of reducing the response time to the Cedar Day community from the Patterson Mill fire substation.

I woke up Labor Day morning after Baltimore's IndyCar race and opened the paper thinking I'd see great headlines and stories about what a fantastic party and sports spectacle we hosted, especially given there was so little time to properly prepare for it ("After Grand Prix of Baltimore, crews hustle to clear downtown streets," Sept. 3). Instead, what I read was negativity from the first paragraph: "A sloppy race full of fits and starts before a diminished crowd. " Well, if it was diminished, the people crammed into the stands around us didn't realize that - and these were people from around the country who came to Baltimore just to see this race.

The new configuration of the confluence of Tollgate Road, Route 24, I-95 and Route 924 is something of a minor marvel of modern engineering. It's probably what should have been built back when the plan was simply to build the modern incarnation of the new Route 24 to replace the old 24, now known as 924. Still, better late than never. The multimillion dollar project, which has been in use for several weeks, is regarded by the Maryland State Highway Administration as a success because it seems to have resolved the problem of the rush hour back-ups of northbound traffic on I-95 at the Route 24 exit.

The State Highway Administration is taking another crack at the Towson roundabout — aiming to improve safety and traffic flow at an intersection that has bedeviled engineers for decades. The agency said it will launch a $632,000 project at the roundabout in the heart of the downtown area Tuesday, requiring a series of lane closings that will continue through late summer. The SHA said this round of work, unlike previous projects, is not intended to fix something wrong but to make permanent some of the changes it got right in 2008.

The problem: Motorists fail to follow a new traffic pattern on a Baltimore County roadway. The back story: You can take a lane away, but that doesn't mean that drivers will obey. Eastbound Green Summit Road off Greenspring Avenue narrows from two lanes to one lane between Diana Road and Diamond Crest Court. It widens again to two lanes just east of Diamond Crest. But the remains of the old, dashed white lane stripes are still visible, and two signs prior to the lane shift don't call enough attention to the new pattern, said Gail Zlotowitz, who drives on that street on her way home from work.

The long-planned transformation of downtown Towson into a more pedestrian-friendly retail and restaurant hub is to begin tonight with modifications to the traffic patterns at the roundabout and on York Road between the circle and Towsontown Boulevard, the State Highway Administration said. The modifications will expand the roundabout's oval-shaped island, reduce part of the circle to a single lane and eliminate some entrances and exits. The changes are intended to reduce speed, give drivers clearer direction and make the roundabout safer for pedestrians, officials said.

The problem: Why is a lane of a busy downtown Baltimore street closed to traffic during the evening rush? The back story: Charlie Dell has had plenty of time to observe what's been slowing down traffic along Franklin Street just east of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. For more than a month, the Catonsville resident noticed that the southernmost lane of westbound Franklin has been blocked off to allow drivers to enter and exit a garage between Paca and Greene streets near the Social Security Administration building.
