A proposal to enhance bike and pedestrian safety on one of Tallahassee's busiest roadway's is being put on hold.
Last year, The Capital Region Transportation Planning Agency Board approved the concept to condense Tennessee Street from six to four lanes.
Under the proposal, the two outside lanes would be converted into bike and bus lanes and allow for more pedestrian traffic.
City administrators say they are stepping back from the project for now in order to gather more information.
Chris Pope says he drives Tennessee Street every day. He said, "I think that by having an own lane for busing and biking that it'll do well to increase that sort of industry; increase public transportation band decrease emissions. I think the conservative approach to making sure that that if that's done, that it's done well is wise."
The proposal arose from safety concerns related to pedestrians and vehicles on Tennessee Street.
Planning administrators say the project start date has been pushed from this summer to next summer.
