Intersection Of Doom?

20160304_143613This is quite the set up the city’s got going on the north-east corner of Saskatchewan Drive and Albert St. these days.

To get to the island where the walk button is in preparation for crossing Sask. Dr. heading south, or Albert St. heading west, you’ve got to watch for vehicles flying around a curve on Sask. Dr. and merging onto Albert.┬áThen to reach the island you’ve got to navigate a tiny port in all the barricades that have been erected, and do the same when you exit on the opposite side of the island to cross either intersection.

If you happen to be pushing a stroller of some sort, or maybe you’ve got a walker or a scooter, or you’re a cyclist who is crossing in the cross walk because cycling in this area is not for the faint of heart, the island is pretty much inaccessible. So I guess you’d be reduced to going around it when you’re crossing which would potentially put you in the line of traffic.

  1. That photo is Regina in a nutshell. Infinite orange barricades!

    Out of curiosity, how long have those barricades been up? I haven’t been there in a while.
