Charleston narrowing is working well

I walk or bike with my children back and forth to school every day, and our school route has become vastly safer now that cars are driving closer to the posted 25-mph speed limit.
Because I live off of Charleston Road, I am glad to see that the new plan also works well for cars. Charleston is the arterial that my husband and I usually use to get to our neighborhood, so I was a little concerned that the lane reduction might cause congestion.
My fears were groundless. I'm glad to see that it works.
Thanks again for making Palo Alto a safer city to raise our children.
