Page Avenue opens to two-way traffic


Page Avenue returned to two-way traffic on Tuesday, Jan. 9, said Asheville Transportation Director Ken Putnam.


In September 2015, the City made Page Avenue one-way southbound from Battle Square to Battery Park Avenue as demolition on the old Kosta’s Menswear building happened and then construction for the Cambria Suites Hotel began. Now that hotel construction is complete, the street can be returned to two-way traffic. The street is as wide as it was before the construction.


This decision was made in consultation with nearby businesses and property owners.

Signage will go up Tuesday marking Page Avenue as a two-way street again.
