great stuff. With the 2 feet of space leftover on your plan we could make the bike lane 4' and buffer 2'. 6 and 6.5 foot parking dimensions are used in downtown Toronto now as they make room for wider sidewalks, bike lanes etc.... I'm surprised to learn that a car is 6 feet. I can lay sideways across my car and have my feet stick out the other end, and I'm 5'10" Also, 9 and a half foot travel lanes are very common in cities. In fact, I think we have some in Hamilton already. So, at any rate, there is room to tinker with the final design. I'm not sure dedicated bus lanes on King are the way to go. I'd like to see contra-flow bus lanes on Main Street. Of course there is still 'talk' of LRT from city hall, but I think we need to move ahead and stop holding up the entire city for a plan being opposed at city hall and probably with no chance of happening due to no leadership. Unless Hamiltonians suddenly start voting for vision, which I don't see happening anytime soon.
