FYI to anyone thinking that this will result in King having it's street parking remain, don't bet on it. It will likely have one lane westbound, then 2-way LRT, then 1 lane westbound. The only way there could be parking is if the LRT lanes are moved to the south side of King and ALL unsignalized cross streets will need to be dead-ended so that they don't cut across the tracks. this would leave one traffic lane and one parking lane on the northern lanes.

Also, Wilson and Cannon are one-way east of Wellington along with many north/south streets.

One-ways like King William and Hess are different than what we're talking about here.
I PROMISE you, the traffic engineers aren't sitting at city hall saying "let's try to give Main St the 'King William feel'. It'll be the freeway feel.
