But you may see soon see a plan to change the streets in that area to two-way, as part of a restructuring for downtown South Abilene that is years in the making.
"A study found that one-way street conversion wasn't necessary in our south downtown area and that converting them would provide additional access opportunities for economic development in that area," Explains Assistant Director for Abilene's Planning and Development Division, Ed McRoy.
The development plan for south downtown is much more than just changing streets. It's an overall effort to completely revamp the area, to encourage investors and promote economic development .
But for now, that's where it will start.
"We'll have to go through and look at the traffic patterns in the area and have some professionals go in and look at the impacts that has," Said McRoy.
"We will look at sign placement, and all of those things traffic engineers do to make sure that we can do this effectively and safely"
