Main and Dundurn isn't as hopeless as it might appear. I too, voted for that one. I would suggest the following be implemented over the next year:

  1. Zebra crossings, and perhaps even explore a scramble crossing on King.
  2. Extend the curb-side parking that now exists on the south lane of King right to Dundurn, and add a knockdown-stick bumpout onto the SE corner of King/Dundurn similar to the one at Locke/Herkimer.
  3. NO right turn on red. Period.
  4. This one would require more money but get rid of the 6th lane (yes, you read that right) that enters Fortinos from King and widen sidewalks, and plant a boulevard of trees between the new sidewalk and road. Extend this new wide sidewalk right past Fortinos to Cathedral Park.

Sure, King and Main will still function like freeways, but at least we can make them more accommodating for pedestrians.
