A cluster of cones. Why are they there? Who knows? Mating ritual? Union meeting?
This sign is serving no purpose. It is located too far away from the actual construction area. There are several cross streets located between the sign and the construction area where vehicles can enter Secord Street and not benefit from this warning sign. Sooo what’s the point?
Plus the tree in front of the sign?
Windows getting washed on the waterfront condos
Sadly, the condos are located in the City of Thunder Bay where this kind of construction behaviour is tolerated. Washing those windows right now just may be a waste of time.
Those condo owners will have a great time once the parking lot construction on their doorstep starts up in earnest.
Right now, it appears that the contractor is excavating the water line and placing Styrofoam insulation over top of it. Wasn’t this waterline, along with a sewer line, installed back in 2010 along with the pumping station? To service the private development?
Why was the work being done today not done five years ago? Good question.
I believe that this is to protect the waterline from frost. The waterline will be under the new parking lot. With no snow cover, frost can penetrate deeper into the ground. The insulation is expected to slow this process.
Unfortunately, the insulation also insulates against heat penetration. Hmmmm…
The City of Thunder Bay’s latest attempt at trash disposal?
Might be time to fix this
Cyclist using sidewalk even though the street has a bike lane.
A sign that just might need replacement.
These Chinese students, waiting for the bus, got to eat dust every time a vehicle entered or exited from the St. Joseph’s Hospital construction site. How about the patients sitting outside enjoying the sunshine? Who cares about them. Dust suppression costs money.
You suffer through winter all the while looking forward to summer. Then you have to spend that summer eating dust because suppressing that dust costs money.
Yup, Thunder Bay. Thinking of moving here? Think again.
