I love how he suggests a contra-flow traffic lane as if he's an engineer. Queen is lined with local residences, and can't continue to be treated as a traffic sewer. Based on traffic data, I imagine it would make sense to shift the parking to the W side of Queen and have 1 travel lane each way. Restrict parking between 3-6pm in order to create 2 SB lanes on Queen in rush hour.

Also, I'd like to see this cross-section extend all the way up Queen to Barton Street. Don't stop it at King. This would create a direct route for SW residents and Mountain residents to travel to the West Harbour as well as York Boulevard - the 403 or Farmers Market/James N area without having to cut over to Bay or James Street through Durand.

2-way Queen makes a LOT of sense for many reasons.
