The truth is that the old, double decker highway was replaced with a 4-6 lane (plus turning lanes and on street parking lanes in some sections) single level highway with an additional 2 lanes for public transit.

If this is true, that would be the first highway ever with street parking and turning lanes. Sounds like they replaced a freeway with a local street with a better balance - parking, transit lanes etc....

Hamilton is so small and has such little traffic compared to San Fran, TO etc.... that we could cut King, Main, Cannon and Wilson in half and add parking ,wide sidewalks and 2 LRT lanes without cause gridlock or 'big city traffic jams'.
The fact that we won't speaks to the vision at city hall for our lower city.
