    I live right in the most congested stretch of Quebec (just south of Colfax & Quebec), but I’ve learned how to deal with it. After 3 years, I’ve just learned when/how to get around, with little to no frustration. It’s interesting, however, that such supposed “important traffic congestion issue” hasn’t received more meaningful action from the city government. I agree with Mr. Royer, there should be and can be a cost effective plan that doesn’t have to result in destroying the fabric of the neighborhood.

    I don’t see that widening Quebec would be beneficial for those who live there. A multi-lane, busy street at the front porch of some of the only affordable housing seems ridiculous and unfair for the people living in those homes. How would the big wigs like a busy, busy street at their front door????

    Interesting article. I have lived in Stapleton for a little over 12 years, and Quebec has been a nightmare the entire time. I am curious as to what your proposal is. You say it can be built as a parkway without vehicles running 20 feet from people’s houses, but I don’t see how that can be done. Unless, of course, you’re saying that some houses along the corridor from 6th to 23rd should be condemned and removed. That would do it, but I suspect some of the homeowners might object.
