I'm completely for two way conversions, but is what you've said true, that the flow of traffic would be the same? I've not seen the traffic study, but instinct tells me that the conversion would have a significant negative impact on cross town travel times and speeds. By dividing directional traffic onto two streets you're doubling the number of turning lanes. Actually, if side streets see a conversion as well you're more than doubling it. That being said, slowing people down is entirely the point, and it's a sacrifice that needs to be made to make the downtown a destination rather than a thoroughfare.
