Just to correct you: MIP already has dozens of tenants of varying sizes, and hosts two large laboratories. There are hundreds of employees on the campus. Events of all sizes are routinely held during and after business hours.

If you believe as I do that MIP is a great resource for the city, the road that bisects it needs to be improved. I’m sure it would be difficult to prove empirically, but the types of people who do and will locate at MIP genuinely want different transportation options- they will be turned off by having to contend with 70km/h traffic. MIP is competing for tenants with places like Mars in downtown Toronto and Communitech in downtown Kitchener (among others), so I think the impact could be significant.
