There have been some tangible benefits to conversion, though I entirely agree that traffic calming is desperately needed and that these one-and-a-halfway streets aren't a real solution to our problems.

Because hardly anyone drives west on Wilson St, the north sidewalk feels much safer (although it still isn't a pleasant place to be.) Similarly, Wilson is now a good westbound bike route.

Finally, connectivity for motorists is much improved. When I drive to my house at Mary and Kelly I no longer have to detour through a residential block on Catharine St. to circle back to Mary if I'm approaching from the north or east.
