I walk to work downtown using John St. North. Now that Wilson St. is two way, or as Ryan calls it " TWINO two way in name only", the intersection at John and Wilson is much more dangerous for pedestrians. Traffic is coming from all directions and drivers are looking first for the gaps to turn, then for pedestrians. When I saw Jason's photo of a complete street in a recent article, it dawned on me that Wilson could be turned instantly and easily into a complete street! The westbound single car lane would make a perfect protected two-way bike lane. The cycle lane would be on the eastbound driver's side for good visibility and the street lights are already in place. Put curbside parking on the south side and voila, a complete street all the way to Bay street right through downtown. Same thing could be done easily on Cannon.
