The LRT is planned to run curbside: cars won't have to stop. You seem to be thinking of Toronto's streetcars. Yes: there will be big changes, one of which is that a lot more people will be taking public transit instead of driving. And a lot more people will be living downtown and along the route. Both of which will decrease car traffic along those corridors.

In its 2010 BCA Metrolinx also proposed converting Main to 2-way in order to give drivers more Westbound options other than King. And Steer Davies Gleaves (the consulting engineers) did do a lot of traffic modelling to make sure it would all work.

A whole lot of things will change, and Aberdeen and other streets will likely be reconfigured.
