I don't understand why dundurn has to be widened here, it is already over-built if you consider that the rest of it is one lane in each direction. If there is a need for lanes to access the 403 via King St, wouldn't it be easiest to move the median over and make it one lane south-bound / three lanes northbound?

As I mentioned elsewhere, this would make it absolutely essential to also incorporate protected cycling infrastructure north-bound, since any road that requires three lanes in a single direction is by definition too busy for anything less. Adding car lanes on Dundurn would destroy even what little connectivity it provides for cyclists.

Also, if Queen Street were two way, that would allow people to jog north on Queen to King West, where there is a lot of road space to accomodate west-ward traffic in addition to LRT. This could potentially ameliorate the need to increase capacity on Dundurn.
