The sidewalk/lamppost renovation of Main Street is proceeding nicely. Downtown is looking up.
Unlike 2 women in a photo below, who apparently think the project includes a new pedestrian mall.
Workers were finishing the left-side sidewalk yesterday. But that was not why traffic was snarled.
The cause of the holdup was 2 women — one pushing a stroller — walking side by side. All. The. Way. Down. The. Middle. Of. Main. Street.
There was a perfectly good sidewalk on the right, so maybe the ladies were meandering toward a shop on the left?
They continued north, oblivious to the scrum of cars behind.
The (very patient) driver who inched her way up Main Street behind these 2 Very Special People turned right on Elm. So we don’t know how far they kept walking, smack in the middle of the road.
To be fair, perhaps they were reenacting the British march to Danbury 238 years ago.
If so — and you’re driving on Route 7 today — watch out!
