seancb,

I'm having a hard time with King as well. I understand the stated King benefits of it being the traditional primary artery and offering more private investment opportunities, however the pragmatist in me can't stop looking at the width and straightness of Main for the LRT. Main is so wide in some spots that traffic could continue during construction.

How much longer is the King route than Main and how much more would King cost than Main? Has the project team on the city ever worked out the numbers on this?

After the open house when I was told Main presented a better two way system I could support the King LRT. Now with 2 way traffic for Cannon and Main removed by the city I am leaning towards Main as the better LRT route. I am willing to listen to any King route supporters who can sell me on the route, I've always just kind of accepted it, not REALLY bought into it.
