GREENWOOD, Miss. — Greenwood officials are considering whether to revert to two-way traffic on downtown streets that have been one-way only for a generation.

Mayor Carolyn McAdams tells the Greenwood Commonwealth ( ) that Main Street and Howard Street were turned into one-way thoroughfares in 1988.

The City Council is set to discuss the matter in the coming week. Some council members say they favor a change because people sometimes drive the wrong way on the streets. Others say parking is easier on one-way streets.

The city of Jackson a few months ago converted Capitol Street, which passes the Governor’s Mansion, back into a two-way street.
