An RTH reader was at John Sopinka Courthouse recently for jury duty selection and spent most of the day sitting around and looking out the window at Main Street. This is what the person saw for most of the day:
Main Street, view from John Sopinka Courthouse at 1:30 PM
Main Street is five freaking lanes wide, all one-way, and it's total overkill. Traffic volumes on Main have been falling for over a decade and we can't afford to waste scarce public dollars maintaining excess roadway that isn't necessary to carry the traffic we have and would deliver a vastly better return on investment if we repurposed it to make the city more livable.
