Apparently it was a pong that paralyzed South Granville. Word on the actual and figurative street is that it was some noxious sewer issue that thrust this mass of road work on Hemlock. Here's how we feel about the whole thing.
ZE: "All of a sudden I'm taking my life in my hands walking down one of our normally sleepy alleyways."
HM: "I could be the only person in the neighbourhood who is happy with the situation. Since the construction I now have my own "personal" crossing guard to help me get across the normally perilous Hemlock Street."
LC: "It doesn't affect me at all. I don't drive."
HP: "What have the Romans done for us? The invention of the detour."
