Last I heard, that narrow area (the International Village) will include a pedestrian-only zone, in particular for the LRT platform that will be there. So downtown car traffic will be detoured to Cannon, Hunter, or Wilson. The international village business association supports this, and they're the ones who stand to lose the most, so that's encouraging.

I hope we'll see some two-way conversions of cross-streets to help them get back to King to patronize the stores. I sometimes wonder if the King West bus-lane woes wouldn't have been helped with a two-way conversion of Bay - if you're trying to get from Cannon to, say, Cottage 13, you had to do a weird loop-back at Queen onto York and then turn onto Caroline. Being able to just take Bay might have helped them.
