I think a good approach as far as traffic would be to make main street 2 way east of bay. This way, king street is freed up AND we don't lose that precious "easy access to the downtown" feature that everyone seems to love (i.e. you can get TO the downtown fast, but its harder to get out). That should make the people happy who keep insisting that "getting to downtown" is the main reason to keep the one ways. Bay is also a logical "Escape" for eastbound traffic. I'd change the right turn at queen to a dual lane'r, narrow the stretch from queen to bay (but keep it one way, 3 or 4 lanes) then have a dual left turn onto bay, leaving 1 or 2 lanes eastbound and 1 or 2 lanes westbound past bay.

this might also make the transition easier for later on when we need to put the LRT through there ;-)
