I'm not sure about any 'value in exchange'. Main and King are horrendous. And for over a century they were the economic heartbeat of downtown Hamilton along with east and west end neighbourhoods. Now just barren freeways that carry a fraction of the traffic they were built for. I could see the argument for them if they carried 40-50,000 cars a day, but they don't. Main in front of city hall carries enough traffic to be handled by 2 lanes with a turning lane. East of Wellington it carries the same traffic as the Queen St Hill, which is 1-lane each way. We have 5 lanes one-way.
I would like to see Main either go two way with parking on one-side, or have 2 lanes removed and replaced with a parking-protected two-way cycle track from Longwood to the Delta.
