Over the last week or so, we have heard a lot about the fact that the junction at Skinker and Delmar would be closed for trolley construction work. This is a busy intersection, so diversions have been set up, and there is plenty of signage to tell one that the road is closed.
So I was quite surprised to see so many cars coming along Skinker, some seemingly disbelieving that the road was closed until they had driven right up to the barriers. While I was watching this morning, there were cars, mini buses, and one semi, which took its time to turn carefully in the street. Just before the junction on the Forest Park side there are alleys – one is one way towards Skinker, and the other had a No Entry sign on it. Despite this, some cars went down them, although most turned and went back the way they had come.
