These are great insights and comments. Keep em' coming!

I too wonder why two-way LRT on Main St isn't being looked at? My only guess would be that, as a previous poster mentioned, King is the true retail/commercial street and perhaps the LRT folks are recognizing the massive effect that LRT would have on that street. Main is more suited to taller buildings, hotels and projects like the Hamilton Grand. I'm not saying there shouldn't be an attempt to create street life on Main, but clearly, our shopping/dining/retail future downtown is along King and James.

It appears as though the one-way LRT option ends up being cheaper than 2-way due to the needed work at the 403 interchanges.

I must say that I'm impressed with the work and research being done by the Rapid Transit office. They seem to be leaving no stone unturned and I have more confidence now than ever that we'll end up doing LRT properly.
