Montreal Grand Prix Signage Help for Tourists


Should you be considering visiting my fair city this weekend to take in the Formula One Grand Prix, as many are if hotel and restaurant reservations indicate, I am suggesting to Mayor Coderre the following sign. Rather than infuriate visitors with thousands of roadwork detour signs and road closures notices, on top of our potholed streets, let’s put the signs below on all streets that are:

A) Not currently under construction/repair;
B) Not likely to soon be under construction/repair;
C) Essentially pothole free;and
D) Free of exposed streetcar tracks.


No Road 2

Unfortunately I suspect the only place worthy of the signs is the short strip of Notre Dame that runs right in front of City Hall! So if you do visit, assume all roads are under construction, or in need of same!
