Cops RANDOMLY shutting down streets!?!?
 
ok i'm not 100% on this but i was driving home this evening and at kipling and west humber road (right at hy&zels) a cop was blocking traffic from going further north on kipling...which made little to no sense to me as i didn't see any flashing lights beyond....no ambulance nothing :confused:

could this be for the stupid work to rule thing?.....they think they can shut down a street :confused:

of course i could be wrong.....maybe justin or some other rexdale/north etobicoke visitor can confirm *mumble*

could be a crime scene, the cherries arent always on, could be you got there just when they decided to close the section down

There probably was an accident further up, but they didn't have their lights on.

Or they are doing some Maintanance to electric wires there.. I was going from work on Kipling had to explore some random neighbourhood so I could get to Islington and then get on Finch >.<

Good thing I got off late tonight I didn't encounter anything and was speeding through the area and still got home in 20 mins :D

they do it quite often if they are filming in that area, a few times down near the docks where hte film studios are, they have blocked off hte street and i thought it was some sort of accident , only to see further down the street a film crew... but thats a shot in the dark

I saw the same thing too on my way to work tonight. I had to take a detour to martingrove.
I figure another criminal activity going on. Its not an uncommon thing you see in Rexdale.

I had some roads closed on my way home also, but it was because some big ass trees fell over, and hit the power lines!

Made a few phone calls. There was a broken water main... chances are you wouldn't have noticed the flooded as it rushed northwards (to the Humber River bridge) and dumped out there.

Apparently there is still a construction crew there that are replacing the main from approx 50m south of the Humber River, to 100m north of West Humber blvd. (right at Hy & Zels). Haven't had a chance to see for myself, but since its a water main I would assume traffic has either been re-routed elsewhere, or it has been trimmed down to 2 lanes.
