There's been some discussion about where the East-West traffic will go if the LRT takes up two lanes and Main and King are no longer high-speed, multi-lane expressways. I expect that much of the traffic will simply go to the 403/QEW and the Link.

Any time I want to get to Centennial from Westdale, I have to face the same question: Main St or the 403/QEW? And I know from repeated experiments that they take pretty much the same amount of time. I take the highways if I'm in a bit of a hurray and the city streets if I don't feel like highway driving. Or, more and more often these days, I take Barton or Burlington because they are much more interesting, if longer, routes.

Which is all to say, we will do quite well without mid-town expressway given that we have convenient highways ... and besides, we might just come to enjoy a slow ride through a lively downtown some day.
