Description

It's great that the extra travel lane that used to disappear at Crown was eliminated.

The next step is to permit parking on York from Crown to N Frontage Rd because the lack of on-street parking results in excessively wide travel lanes that induce unsafe speeds. Parking is allowed on both sides of the street north of Crown. I would recommend the same layout south of Crown.

York Street is exactly the same width north and south of Crown.

Achieving consistent lane widths the length of York would help to improve safety and reduce speeding.
