Wow. Talk about over-engineering.

I imagine that "2 rights" would be prohibited if bypass lanes are there, with drivers directed to use the bypass to make their right turn. But how do you actually prevent someone from entering the roundabout and making that right anyway? It creates a dangerous situation.

What happens if the CPR yard eventually becomes an extension to the MIP, which was one of the concerns when that land was being considered as an alternate site for the stadium? Will that change the traffic patterns? Will this intersection require further "enhancements" later that will require more land, which may be better served for other uses? (such as MIP buildings, or even just open space on the corner for people?)

Why didn't they consider grade separation for EB/WB traffic between 403 and the city along Aberdeen? Expensive yes, but digging down to create some direct through-lanes for traffic that does not use Longwood might save space, reduce complexity, and improve things for pedestrians or cyclists.
