There's Bay Street. A lot of drivers won't even try to use Yonge Street anymore. It's not that practical as is. There are so many left turn restrictions.
That's a fair point. I checked to see if it was feasible to make Yonge between Queen and Gerrard northbound, and Bay in the same section southbound, but if Alternative 4 is chosen then drivers can simply take Church, Bay, Bond, or Victoria to get around the single block. I assume they would also make the tiny section of Shuter west of the laneway eastbound only.

The little stretch between Shuter and Dundas, if it's pedestrianized, would end up sort of like a northeast extension of the Eaton Centre, and I'm curious as to whether that would end up altering the retail landscape there slightly.
