Now they can block people on either side, instead of one side (the outer) now with the wider sidewalks, there is more room for those moving in one direction to stand and wait for those coming the other way.
What is up with this city, I remember when the streets were being improved, particularly the West End area. The primary had a pour ready and due to poor layout, someone else (another crew/company had to dig a hole in that portion that was waiting for rebar reinforcing )came along and with a backhoe started digging their hole. The foreman came up and almost came to blows with the backhoe operator, over the need for this new hole in his road. I believe it was even reported on in the paper.
I do not bring this up to castigate anyone, but to point out the lack of thinking that goes into any new project undertaken by our City Govt.
