Signage: One-Way Streets

Converting two-way streets to one-way streets can help reduce cut-through traffic when there is a dominant direction in traffic flow.

One Way Street


  • Reduces high volume of non-local traffic that uses the street as a shortcut


  • Residents may be inconvenienced by the one-way flow
  • Drivers may disregard the one-way sign and drive into oncoming traffic
  • The cut-through traffic may be diverted to parallel streets
  • Pedestrians are less likely to check for vehicles approaching from the wrong direction

Eligibility Considerations

  • 90% of adjacent property owners must agree
  • Review and approval by the San Antonio Police and Fire Departments
  • Requestor(s) and residents must acknowledge that the one-way designation would be permanent
