Thanks for these corrections and clarifications, Kevin!

One additional falsehood that Whitehead keeps presenting is that these were previously multi-lane roads. The reality is that Herkimer between Queen and James (arguably the most contentious stretch) functioned with a single auto lane prior to the reconfiguration with the exception of 7-9am when the north parking lane accommodated travel.

The removal of that morning rush hour lane was carefully studied by city staff and it was determined to not be needed based on measured traffic volumes.

Other than those 2 hours, the only change to this stretch for cars is a slightly narrower lane (a cue for drivers to actually travel at the speed limit, but certainly not a change significant enough to create the backups claimed by Whitehead).
