They did actually put guard rails on the edge of the sidewalk, on the west side of James Street South. That stretch was supposed to be the up and coming area in the 70's when they designated that row of 1850's buildings to keep it as a shopping district. The streetscaping includes a useless area of cobblestone below sidewalk grade that you can't walk on, separated from the road with a steel chain running between posts. There is a break in the fence with steps leading down to the road opposite Augusta, but the crosswalk has faded and presumably it's no longer legal to cross there.

They didn't do anything to address it when they converted James to two way. However James North got wider sidewalks, bump outs and street parking, and as a result slower traffic, and it has become a great street to walk on.
