Fifth Eighty Second Avenue Heartache

CBC Edmonton is reporting that Whyte Avenue merchants are concerned about lost business due to construction.

The north side of Whyte between 104th and 105th streets has been torn up so crews can repave the road and replace curbs and sidewalks.

You're kidding, right?

Ask these guys if they would prefer to maybe just have 1/2 the road torn up in a single block.

This also bodes poorly for my age-old plan of having a subway built underneath Whyte Ave. Think they mind the construction now?
