Seems obvious why they picked that segment of Rebecca - a wide, low-traffic street with no traffic lights or bump-outs. As soon as it requires any thought or risk or planning, it stays 1-way. Literally all they have to do is paint a line down the middle and put up some signs.

This is the lowest of low-hanging fruit. If this is the kind of segment they have planned in their "to-do-list" then I'm confused why they're doing one-per-year instead of one-per-hour.

Of course, an activist could be proactive and find other "ultra-low-hanging-fruit" segments - no traffic, wide-enough for two cars to travel abreast with all parking in-use, no bump-outs or other intersection shaping that wouldn't fit with the current orientation, and no traffic-lights.... but somehow I suspect that even armed with this, I think City Hall would ignore the request.
