Winter and road construction, they say, are the two seasons in Canada, last summer seemed to be especially bad. But that’s because I live near Erb Street, my office is near Queen Street, and I was always finding myself in some sort of road construction zone, King Street in Kitchener was, of course an ever (slow) moving detour.
Anyone taking highway 8 to the 401 or Cambridge is well aware of the road widening effort of the past couple years. Sportsworld Drive exit will be closed for five months but the future is certain and the end is near. November 2012 is the expected completion date.
