August begins and construction continues on boulevard St-Joseph, preventing commuters from heading south on rue St-Urbain.
The plan: Replace aging water infrastructure
The deadline: October 2011
I ask you: Is it selfish of me to hope that St-Urbain never reopens?
Barrelling cars have been replaced by playing children.
The whispers of trees now dominate over the groans of traffic.
On several occasions, the street has come alive with song and dance.
Bottles of wine suddenly uncork and begin to flow amongst the neighbours.
The formerly one-way street now welcomes cars, bikes, and people heading in every which direction.
I guess it’s not fair for commuters that the only route into downtown between St-Denis and Côte-des-Neiges is now off-limits.
But I don’t think I really care.
I can finally sleep with my window open.
Call me selfish: I hope St-Urbain never reopens.
