I worry two-way streets AND dedicated transit lanes would be too much of a change all at once, provoking unintended political consequences. People might feel like they're being socially engineered. (Even though we all know one-way streets were social engineering to begin with.)

I'm still leaning toward one-way King/Main with an LRT lane each and significant traffic calming. This would move all forms of traffic really well.

Hamilton is a working city. Our instinct for utilitarianism is not unfounded. It'll be a long time before anything here resembles Bloor West, etc. I don't think we should be aiming for that.
