Toronto might convert 2 downtown streets to one-way

Toronto's King West neighbourhood is usually snarled with traffic. And it's not only busy at rush hour. This area sees lots of cars - usually taxis and Ubers - on Friday and Saturday nights too thanks to popular clubs such as Citizen and Early Mercy.

To curb congestion, as CTV News reports, the city is looking at making Brant and Maud (located between Richmond and King and Richmond and Adelaide, respectively) one-way streets.

Ward 20 councillor Joe Cressy met with area residents yesterday evening for a walk-and-talk meeting about these potential road-related changes.

As CTV writes, the city was prompted to look into one-way streets after it received a development proposal for a hotel at Brant and Camden - it's likely the long-rumoured 130 suite Ace Hotel that might move in to 49-51 Camden St.

And along with this incoming hotel, there's a new condo at Brant and Adelaide and the old Waterworks building is slated for a makeover.

Though don't expect these streets to change directions any time.There's still a long way to go before this issue makes its way in front city council.
