The answers to all West Palm Beach’s traffic problems?

The city’s four-day traffic study charrette concludes this evening, as consultants Alta Planning + Design present potential fixes to downtown congestion. It’s the first draft of a plan, as the consultants prepare to continue their work through the summer.

The sessions for the past three afternoons at the Palm Beach County Convention Center have invited input from residents and discussion with the consultants. They focused mainly on Okeechobee Boulevard and how it feeds commuters into downtown.

All options were on the table, from tunnels, to depressing the train tracks, to narrowing roadways, improving bus and trolley service and bicycle pathways, and turning the Tent Site into a transit hub.

Tonight’s concluding session starts at 5:30 p.m., again in the convention center.

If you go, be careful crossing Okeechobee.
