MONTREAL — An unfortunately positioned utility pole, which gained national notoriety for its position smack in the middle of a rural Quebec highway, is gone.
It survived there for two months. Fortunately, all the motorists who drove past it survived, too.
No accidents were reported as a result of the bizarre phenomenon of infrastructure planning — or lack thereof. Players involved in the project blamed poor communication for the fact that the pole wasn’t removed in time from the path of a newly paved road.
