Online Survey Finds Little Support for Changing Cheyenne Streets
An admittedly unscientific survey of Townsquare Media of Cheyenne website visitors found an overwhelming majority opposed to the idea of making Central and Warren avenues two-way streets.
The two avenues, which are major north-south travel routes in Cheyenne, have been one-way streets since the early 1970s. In a recent interview on KGAB radio in Cheyenne, Mayor Marian Orr said she would like to see the two avenues changed to two-way streets as a way to combat speeding.
The mayor has made a crackdown on speeding one of the top priorities for the Cheyenne Police Department in 2018. But an online survey of visitors to the Townsquare Media of Cheyenne websites over the past week has found little support for the idea.
Out of 347 people answering the online survey, 86 percent were opposed to the idea of changing the two avenues to two- way streets. Fourteen percent supported the idea.
It is important to note, however, that the survey did not break down responses by demographics to reflect Cheyenne's population, and it may or may not accurately reflect public opinion on the issue.
