with the traffic volume it could be reduced to one lane each way.

Absolutely. Cannon has only 10,800 vehicles a day east of Sherman (2,700 per lane) and 9,100 vehicles west of Sherman (2,275 per lane). Reduced to two lanes west of Sherman, it will have just 4,550 vehicles per lane - that's still low for a city street. If that's extended east of Sherman, two lanes will mean just 5,400 cars per lane.

For comparison, Chicago's Complete Streets guidelines specify that an arterial with 18,000 cars a day should be one lane in each direction, or 9,000 cars per lane.
