The city's current plan is to put the LRT on King and keep it 1 way. This is because most of King will have only 2 lanes of traffic remaining. 1-lane each way isn't satisfactory for the city on a major street and the International Village demonstrates how a 2-lane 1-way street can be pedestrian-friendly.

Fundamentally, the anti-1-way argument isn't about some intrinsic feature of 1-way streets... they're a little inconvenient and awkward, of course... but that's not the main problem.

The problem is speed. This is the heart of a city, and it functions like a highway. That's unsafe and unpleasant for pedestrians along these streets.
