Four lane Bailey Hill Road in Eugene, Oregon, is set for a road diet. A ten-year-old boy was killed crossing the street here when cars in the curb lane stopped, but a speeding car in the second lane did not. This type of "Multiple Threat" crash is common on four lane roads. The new configuration will have three lanes -- one through lane in each direction, and a left turn lane or a raised median as needed. It will be easier and safer to cross.
