I had a bit of a back-and-forth with Chris Slatt on this when he wrote a piece for GGW on it a couple weeks ago. While I am in favor of a PBL, it's worth noting that doing a proper PBL would require taking out a lane of parking north of Washington Blvd, and likely something similar south of Washington. I understand that the lane on the southbound side is not often used, so that may be a possibility for that section, but the street width gets tighter south of Washington.

Chris sent me detailed street widths for the corridor which I have yet to go through, but the point is that it'll require taking something from the existing roadway to make them fit. The question becomes whether it'll survive whatever opposition to the take-away that crops up.
