One-way streets in St. Pete may soon go both ways

You could soon see some changes to the way you drive through downtown St. Petersburg. 

The city is trying to turn several one-way streets into two-way. 

St. Pete wants to turn 3rd, 4th, and 8th streets, as well as Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, which are all one-way, into two-way streets.

City leaders are asking the state for $200,000 to pay a consultant to study traffic flow and come up with a new design.

Businesses and the city hope this will allow easier access to downtown shops and restaurants.

If FDOT gives St. Pete the green-light to do this, it would happen in about two years.
