Ryan - Has the City provided any data that indicates the amount of traffic that would be turning (left or right) off Longwood into either side of MIP or Careport? Could the argument be made that, notwithstanding general guidelines of traffic volumes and corresponding road design (e.g. Chicago design), this specific study area has data that suggests dedicated lanes are needed to accommodate turning?

I'm no traffic engineer or expert but I have never heard of the City collecting such data to make that argument, nor any study collecting this kind of data in order to add additional lanes (other than left-turn lanes).

If the City hasn't collected that data and is just speculating, that's troublesome as we are dealing with multi-million dollar capital expenditures for a permanent second hwy. 403 bridge, not to mention walkability and attractiveness of the whole MIP area.
