Gainesville to Hillcrest Avenue residents: Dont block traffic
City will post signs, follow up with police enforcement
Signs will soon be posted along Hillcrest Avenue in Gainesville warning residents not to block traffic with their parked cars. City leaders had considered making the road one-way and allowing cars to park only on one side of the road, but residents expressed concerns with that plan.
Hillcrest Avenue in Gainesville will not become a one-way street, for now, but residents will need to be careful not to block traffic when they park. The city plans to post signs banning cars from blocking the street, then follow up with police enforcement to address concerns with emergency vehicle traffic. Emergency vehicles and trash trucks were having trouble getting through the narrow street, which has few driveways.
