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.

These are exactly the sort of micro-level reasons why all of our streets should be two-way except in very unusual circumstances.
