I'm happy to see this coming along as well, although the commuter inconvenience is a curious concern in light of the negligible concentration of commuter jobs downtown. The phrasing might just be one of those muscle memory thing, a reptilian reflex.

I suspect that the financial reasons for a cascading roll-out of two-way streets are a more compelling factor than the psychological distress it might cause. After all, downtown isn't as bustling with business or social life as it was in the 1950s, the city's coffers are certainly less flush, and (just a guess) the roadwork contractors are considerably more expensive than they were back in the day.
