New sidewalks on Somerset

The first bits of concrete pavers were laid on Somerset today, just west of Preston. This is the style of paver to be used from the O-train east to Booth. It will also be the paver used if more of Chinatown is streetscaped.

The pavers are a brown-red shade, with a very coarse surface grooving, which will be great for grip when climbing those hills in the winter, but which will be murder on kids’ knees one they inevitably take a tumble.

All those involved in the design committee for the Somerset reconstruction will understand why the paver installation started at Musca’s.

  1. For those of us who were not so involved, why did Musca’s get their sidewalk first?
