MTO would probably be mindful of benefits to adjacent highway corridors (ie. 5,8,52). The Ministry writes:

"The roundabout design will be able to accommodate traffic volume increases expected over the next 20 years and includes three 2-lane entries and one 1-lane entry. The southbound entry has a dedicated left-turn lane, which provides for heavy left-turn movements during the morning peak traffic. The westbound approach has a fully channelized right-turn bypass. A truck apron around the central island is also included to facilitate large vehicle movements."

Time to start promoting King Street as Historic Highway 8, and really tap that upper-level funding!
