Highwater,

If you're noting the study I think you are, it is important to note that the study didn't say that travel times increase by 6-7% for One Way to Two Way conversions. The study said that in the specific example(s), that was the difference in travel time.

I think it is a fair assumption that if 4 lanes of One Way were converted to 2 or 1 lane of Two Way, there would be more than a 6 or 7 % increase in travel time.

(edited to add...)

If you want to argue that the conversion of King or Main will only increase travel time by 6 or 7% then you also have to acknowledge that driving speeds will increase or at least stay the same because you have to account for the time spent stopped at the increased number of red lights (time spent at a stop) the drivers will encounter on route.
