This freshly paved patch of highway in rural Quebec came with one rather large catch... about the size of a bizarrely placed hydro pole in the middle of the road!
It seems road crews in charge of paving the new stretch of highway blame poor communication as the reason they originally left the unfortunately positioned utility pole standing tall. Meanwhile, transport and utility officials continue to point the finger at each other as the cause of the big blunder on Highway 251 near Sherbrooke, Quebec.
Thankfully the dangerous hydro pole was finally removed from centre of the road this week, after gaining National notoriety and taking nearly two months of waiting. Luckily there were no reported accidents or crashes caused by the poorly positioned hydro pole during the time it stood.
