Re: “Portland panel to consider two-way traffic on State and High streets” (July 29):

Not again! “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

The traffic situation on State and High streets was fixed in the ’70s by making them one-way. I noticed that the idea of changing it back to two-way is being resurrected.

The proponents for making them two-way disregard the inconvenience of drivers who must cross town daily; don’t seem to realize the level of pollution from the exhausts of idling cars waiting for lights to change; and seem to disregard the cost factor.

I hope the Portland City Council has the courage to ditch the two-way plan forever. I encourage everyone to cross streets with caution, whether one-way or two-way!
