The cost of two-way conversion should be very low. The total cost of the two-way conversions of both Caroline and Hess between Main and Herkimer was only $72 000 in 2002. That works out to only about $5000 per block! And there were four intersections with lights.

Note that the Ministry of Transportation minimum recommended width for a two-way street is 8.5m between the sidewalks.

Finally, note that in 2003 the Ministry ruled that an Environmental Assessment was not required for these conversions.
