I'm not sure about statistics, that's my anecdotal observation from living on that stretch. When there's a festival in the park all of those crossings are quite busy, but on a daily basis I tend to see more people trying to cross at Locust - foot traffic between the park and the restaurants/shops on that block.

There is probably no light at that crossing because it's so close to Brant, and Burlington Ave. is more of a halfway point to the next light at Nelson, between Spencers and the art gallery.

For a two-lane road west of Brant (through-lanes, not including the turning lane immediately west or the median turn lane), before it widens again to three at Nelson and four when it becomes Northshore at Maple, Lakeshore Rd. handles a lot of traffic, especially during rush hour or on a nice weekend, and it can move at a good clip.
