Rumbough Place in Malvern Hills will become one-way street

Full announcement from the city of Asheville:

ASHEVILLE – Beginning May 8, 2013, the City of Asheville Transportation Department will implement a one-way traffic pattern for Rumbough Place between Sulpher Springs Road and Harris Street on the west side of Malvern Hills Park.

The designation of Rumbough as a one-way street is a yearly occurrence and accounts for increased traffic pressure near the Malvern Hills pool. This year, direction of travel will be reversed, flowing from Sulpher Springs Road to Harris Street.

The change comes out of neighborhood discussions about cut-through traffic on Rumbough, as well as to make access to the pool more convenient for visitors.

The one-way designation will remain in place through at least the closing of pool season. City staff continues to discuss with the neighborhood the possibility of permanent one-way status for Rumbough Place.
