LRT stops in the middle of the roadway would be done like this:

Similar to the Spadina stations in Toronto https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/c...

King is narrower than Spadina, but it gives you the idea of how the street will function: 2-way traffic on either side of the dedicated LRT lanes. Crossing the street or turning in either direction will be possible at signalized intersections. Approaching King from a side street will allow you to turn right onto King.

Our best local example now is York Boulevard from Bay to Dundurn. If you approach York at a signalized intersection you can drive in any direction. From a side street you can only turn right. Pretend the treed median on York was actually an LRT median. Exact same design concept will apply to King St once it has LRT.
