One-way Bay Street certainly worth a try

info@islandpacket.comAugust 21, 2013 

I want to endorse Nancy Rhett's suggestion to make downtown Beaufort's Bay Street one-way from the bridge west to Charles Street (with Port Republic one-way to the east).

Then we could have lateral as opposed to parallel parking.

The number of additional parking spaces would enable the town to do away with pay-to-park (and those orange "gotcha" envelopes).

As Nancy Rhett says, "Come on Beaufort, it is worth a try."
