Fantastic article. I am encouraged to find people who recognize what the King/Main expressway has done to downtown. For a perfect example, look at the United Church on King & McNab. Once was likely a majestic centerpiece of the neighborhood, has had its grounds sliced off bit by bit over the years by road expansions. Now it looks completely unapproachable, barricaded by traffic on all sides, with barely a sidewalk for pedestrians. Still, I worry that narrowing the roads, and widening the sidewalks may be too little too late. King Street was narrowed just East of downtown, but the neighborhood has failed to pick up.
