Nicely put. Ryan, do you see value in any main intra-city thoroughfares maintaining one-way designation? (And apologies if I've asked this before...don't believe I have.) I get King and Main confused, so bear with me...If Main was maintained as a one-way inlet into the city's downtown - could this be seen as something that could enhance/ expedite the trip to downtown as the destination? Somewhat playing devils advocate here, but provided that (and I don't know this for a fact) that there are seemingly few surface-level residences, could this benefit the businesses that are on, and adjacent to, Main Street?

I definitely want to see downtown based on walkability (and scrambles seem like a no-brainer), but I would also like to ensure choking emissions don't result due to gridlock -- resulting in those from the nearby communities not wanting to participate in the downtown economy.
