exactly right. This plan actually creates MORE traffic for your residential street. Not sure exactly which neighbourhood associations are in this area, but you may want to contact them and share your concerns. The conversion won't be happening until next summer it sounds like, so there's plenty of time for residents to speak up.

Ryan posted the traffic data a few comments above. Keep in mind that a single urban traffic lane is designed to carry 10,000 cars per day. They're going to be giving you two of these lanes southbound, which equals a 20,000 car capacity. Current numbers show a MAX of 4,000 cars per day travelling southbound. Incredibly dangerous and irresponsible for staff to even think of overbuilding this street like this when they know how dangerous our overbuild roadways are with speeding.
