There is more than enough room to remove a lane on Main street - even 2 lanes. Watch carefully the next time the city works department does road maintenance on Main Street and closes off 2 or 3 lanes (when in other cities they don't hog lanes this way for construction - but that's another story); What you'll find is that traffic is not really slowed much. Even during rush hour I've noticed that reducing lanes during construction might slow traffic by 30-60 seconds (I've sat in my car and timed it). There is not justifiable reason to have a 5 lane expressway through downtown other than to let traffic planners continue to make traffic throughput the ONLY thing they consider.
