Confusing Montreal Road Repair Signs


There used to be a silly joke that stated you could keep a moron occupied for hours merely by giving him/her a piece of paper with “please turn over” written on both sides. While out for a stroll yesterday I came upon the road repair version of this. As shown above both sidewalks sported signs indicating they were closed and to use the other side. I must have crossed and recrossed that street for ten minutes before I caught on!

  1. Was it successful? Were people running back and forth across the street? In Israel, they once put up “no entry” signs on every street so once you got in the intersection, all you could do was sit there in the car and wonder where you were allowed to go. It was very “Twilight Zone.”
