This is at the corner of Park Avenue and Court Street. Just what is going on here? The water appears to be undermining the concrete sidewalk. It looks like the sidewalk as placed on top of ab exiting gutter. Anyway, that pathetic attempt at a wheelchair ramp is laughable at best. Somewhat satisfied? Not really. […]
Primary area for improvement….Primary area for enhancement…. The truth is what is in the box in the bottom right. the bars represent satisfaction levels with each service. The red bars, which I assume represent low satisfaction levels, cover infrastructure that are the basic core building blocks of a city. I just do not understand how […]
More light standard issues. These light standards were installed last year. This one appears to be dangerous to the public but what do I know. Maybe the electricity gets to the top via some other route? Previous posts here and here. Who are our managers in charge of this? City of Thunder Bay MATSON DARRELL […]

This is why drivers in Thunder Bay don’t obey these types of signs. Often, they are left up for no reason. And city staff never checks on […]
They started digging this Friday right lunch. Of course, time ran out. How to protect drivers using one of the city’s busiest streets over the entire weekend? Stick up some cones of course. And cones, they always stay in place. Never move or disappear. The barricades? All but useless. So…what happens if […]
The diagram above illustrates the various types of crosswalk treatments that are most commonly used around the world.
With addition of a second cone and the white paint, it appears that repair is imminent. Could happen in the next month or so. By the way, the white paint means nothing. The eventual hole will be much smaller than the area outlined by the white paint. I have no idea what it means. […]
An update to a previous post. Remember this section of sidewalk? Well, the work is now complete and this is what we have. A longitudinal seam which will have water trying its best to enter at every opportunity. Once water gets in, and it will, the concrete will crack but, so what right? Cracked concrete […]
