The reason for stopping the two-way reversion at John is almost certainly the same as the (abandoned) reason for removing the parking spaces between John and Catharine: slavish devotion to suburban design principles that consider the street to be too narrow for two-way traffic and curbside parking. For whatever reason, the initial decision was to sacrifice parking east of John and two-way traffic to the west.

Of course, just as the roadway between John and Catharine can in reality accommodate low-speed two-way traffic and parking, so too can the roadway west of John.

The utility of this conversion will also be hamstrung by the absence of a traffic light at John, but that's a fight for another day.
