Expropriation is needed for the current one-lane for cars each direction. To add a bike lane will create further need for expropriation and easement agreements. For that bike lane to be protected requires more width.

In the International Village, the one lane for motor vehicles is needed to allow access to existing parking structures - be it the Effort Trust (Crowne Plaza) parking structure or the apartment building between Ferguson and Spring.

There is no further room to include bike lanes without great cost.

The focus, in my opinion, should be ensuring safe bike travel connecting to LRT stations, and cycling as a crosstown option south of the LRT.
