Well, there isn't a lot of traffic coming from southbound along Caroline, but I will agree that not having the street be continuous is kinda silly. Although this could lead towards more two way conversion of York and Cannon (although baby steps). Hopefully the city follows through on this one.

Lets be honest though, we know the real reason they are making this conversion. It's so that the Staybridge Suites (and possibly the new Federal Building development) can have easier access to and from Main and King. It keeps drivers away from Hess St (which is a predominantly pedestrian area) and doesn't require them to go down Bay St and then connect back to King and then turn up Caroline. It also means people leaving can just turn north and onto King vs going down George, left onto Bay and then left onto King. I can't really say that's a bad thing so long as they leave the stretch between Hess and George alone.
