@Ryan - either way, though, the presence of the mountain access there means that this will inevitably be a bottleneck. There's no escaping that. And I totally agree that too much traffic is shunted onto the pedestrian-unfriendly Aberdeen. But in this case, the city doesn't just speed up traffic on Aberdeen, it also forces west-bound drivers onto it by blocking off their north-bound access. I would totally support converting Queen to 2-way, and calming Aberdeen with all-way stops or what-have-you... combined with the Frid connection to Longwood you'd be able to slow down drivers without destroying the utility of the Beckett access because drivers would be taking 3 different routes west instead of all of them being crammed onto one terrible little highway.
