Council Votes to Return Hubbell Avenue Traffic Pattern


DES MOINES, Iowa — The Des Moines city council voted unanimously to return the traffic pattern on Hubbell Avenue to four lanes.

Last year, the city restriped the lanes into three on a one-year trial basis.

Traffic engineers said would calm traffic and cut down on collisions. But a new report shows crashes increased for the first three months.

The project will cost $15,000.
