With the pumpkins only slightly frosted under a clear November sky, it was the perfect afternoon to make the trek downtown to witness the cutting of the ribbon to the city's newest roadway.
The 4th Street underpass, already receiving accolades for shaving time and frustration from commutes, will be instrumental in linking the city's East Village - a previously isolated and ignored area- to the rest of downtown.
With the rebirth of East Village as Calgary newest, oldest, coolest, warmest neighbourhood, the 4th Street underpass makes for a stunning entrance.
It's going to be a great place to hang out this summer. You should come join me.
