Monday morning. My office building faces this street (the building's on the left).
We knew the cross street (beyond the Road Closed barrier) was scheduled to be ripped up.  A new road will be put in, with new sidewalks, crosswalks, lights, and such.

But what we didn't know was that OUR street was also to be ripped up. After some tense negotiations between the Project Manager and tenants of our office building, an agreement was made.  They would only tear out half of the street at this time, so we all could continue to do business.  The other half would be torn out at a later date and we would actually be given advance notice first....

Nothing like clouds of dust, piles of rubble, and the rumble and roar of machines all day, all week.
Although there are some who find it fascinating.....

Four roses

Life is like a rose garden - watch for the thorns and keep the pest dust handy.
