LRT does not affect Main, only King. And we will still have 3 live lanes of Cannon, which is why they put it on King - so there's still one massive eastbound corridor and one massive westbound corridor.

King is 5 lanes west of Locke. LRT takes two lanes. That means the Eastbound Cannon->Queen->King corridor will still be 3 lanes for most of its length, with the 2-lane break from Cannon/Queen to King/Locke. That's still solid 1-way throughput.

And besides, an arterial does not cease to be an arterial when it becomes two-way. Herkimer and Charlton would function just fine as two-way. That would slightly calm down traffic and make it more human-friendly, and would still allow drivers plenty of freedom there... more even. There may be some super-narrow areas of Charlton that are worth keeping 1-way for street-side parking, but 1-way should be the exception and not the rule.
