Starting to see a lot of this at intersections. Sad.
Winter roads budget goes over budget because it snowed………really? Not record setting snowfalls mind you. Snow….which we get every year since…ummm…forever!
I’m guessing that the saw operator eyeballed these cuts. But then, does anyone really care? No pride or craftsmanship here. Looks like shit. Why do managers get pay increases when their departments produce shit like this?
Algoma Street constructed in 2011. Now two sections of curb and gutter are being replaced because it looks like this.. It looked like this in 2012 but who is keeping track? Warranty work? Should be but I’m betting dollars to doughnuts that will be city work crews doing this work…at taxpayers’ expense…..again! City […]
Will the circle be unbroken By and by, Lord, by and by – popular Christian hymn written by Ada R. Habershon with music by Charles H. Gabriel. The Infrastructure Deficit. Why does it feel like nothing is happening? Well, have a look. Repairs are made but five months later, you are back to square one. Fixing the same thing […]

Cars still have to drive over that gravel. people still have to walk over what passes as a sidewalk. People still have to walk cross the street. People using the crosswalk are walking on what equates […]
Somehow this setup just does not look all that secure or safe. Does this look like the work of highly paid professionals? Not really. Do you consider this product somewhat satisfactory? Not really. What exactly do those exposed wires do? What happens if someone cuts them? Who knows? I’m guessing the traffic lights go out. […]
Update on previous post. Looks like someone has decided that the work was crap after all. Instead of doing it right the first time, taxpayers now have to pay for a second attempt.

Cumberland Street. One lift of asphalt down. Long weekend. Lines were painted for safety. Good. Asphalt was placed in front of the manholes to allow vehicles to drive over them without damaging rims and tires. Somewhat good or is it fairly good? Placing asphalt so it forms a ramp all around the manhole would have […]
