This is why I wish the city would streamline John Street South. That's one case where I think the street needs more driving capacity, particularly Southbound. It would encourage drivers to take the most direct route from King/Main to the Jolley Cut instead of scrambling through residential roads in Durand.

describes a compromise between 1-way and 2-way streets where left-turns are banned except where specifically accommodated. It describes this as providing the best trip-serving capacity since it allows both clear wayfinding without constant blockages from left-turns. Get rid of the silly TWINO (two-way-in-name-only) version of John and the inexplicable single lane of access to the Jolley and make John a proper connection.

With John South properly connecting drivers to the Jolley Cut, James South and the various Durand one-ways would be less appetizing for drivers through downtown. Then put bike lanes on James South since it's no longer a southbound TWINO artery.
