As much as I'd love lanes on the 1-way streets given away to 2-way bike lanes like the QEW King/Main bridges, I tend to think that'd be a safety hazard. The "Principle of Least Surprise" is vitally important to cyclist survival - drivers travelling on the 1-way King/Main streets wouldn't expect a lone lane of oncoming bike traffic. The king/main bridges work because there are no intersections.

Does anyone know if it's been attempted anywhere? 1-way downtown streets augmented with 2-way bike lanes?

But either way, the central argument is sound: 1 way streets in Hamilton move smoothly even at rush-hour. They've got room for a bike-lane, easily.
