There is undeniably some sort of value in creating a main intra-city thoroughfare - it is valuable for any number of people wishing to cross the lower city. However, it is a much BETTER value to prioritize the traffic needs and local environments of the lower city to maximize the prospects of walkability and contiguous communities.

In a hierarchy, we should be looking to support:
residents living downtown-->people looking to travel downtown-->people looking to cross town.

I do not doubt the good intentions of our planning forefathers in establishing those large one-way roads through town. No doubt, the argument was made that it will allow people to travel faster to and from downtown. However, history has shown that those changes have come at the expense of downtown life, which should have been top priority.
