Officials are considering a change to University Avenue, narrowing the street to one lane in each direction.

According to the Pioneer Press, a committee of St. Paul officials and business advocates are set to study the proposal over the next few months.

Those in favor say a one-lane road would add more parking and allow for a big bike path. However, Ramsey County officials want to wait until mid-2014 to see how the light rail impacts drivers.
