I'm leaning towards King and Main converted to 2-way traffic with one way centre median LRT on both streets. Why? Because Main St's present one way portion is almost exclusively 5 lanes in width. Two way with a centre lane taken for LRT would still allow 2 lanes in each direction, or one lane in each direction with parking and a bicycle lane. This could be adjusted according to traffic congestion. Secondly, this configuration would reduce the amount of impact on King St, possibly still allowing a lane of parking through the village. Thirdly, this option also pushes the positive economic benefits along both King and Main and at the same time achieve calming of the traffic environment through conversion of both streets to 2 way. Sounds like win-win all around to me.
