I applaud Ryan for his attempts to offer some solutions, and truth be told, I have a few ideas of my own for this stretch, and Strathcona, but can't bring myself to write them out and publish them because I can't get past the notion that we're actually considering adding more car lanes in lower Hamilton. We have a ridiculously overbuilt road network and are only going to be losing 2 lanes to LRT. The LRT corridor is home to our most dense population and dense employment nodes. Huge potential exists for people to leave the car at home and use LRT....unless we offer them more wide open, high-speed roadways for single occupancy vehicles. I'm not aware of any city trying to add 4-5 new lanes for cars in response to using two lanes for LRT. Enough with the car addiction in this city.
