Cannon W of Mary= 4 lanes 1-way, accommodating 16,700 total traffic volume @ 4,175/lane
Cannon W of Sherman = 4 lanes 1-way, accommodating 9,100 total traffic volume 2,275/lane
Cannon E of Sherman = 2 lanes each way w/curb parking, accommodating 10,800 total traffic volume @ 2,700/lane

Cannon is already two-way east of Sherman and yet accommodates 15% more traffic than the 4-lane one-way stretch of Cannon between Sherman and Mary, suggesting that there is ample capacity for two-way conversion on that 2km stretch. As most of the residential density along Cannon appears east of Wellington, and since that stretch has demonstrably more lane capacity than is needed, it would seem like a good idea to target Wellington to Sherman as a priority conversion.

BTW, does anyone know how "Complete Cannon St. W" ranked in the Ward 2 participatory budgeting sessions?
