Tough Gets Tougher

A major morning-commute route for automobiles and buses, Calle Segunda (also known as Calle Benito Juárez) was ripped up a couple of days ago for resurfacing, virtually closing the popular artery to traffic between Avenida Revolución and Niños Héroes, a distance of a couple of city blocks.

Road crews and heavy-equipment operators have moved in, pulling up asphalt along the route and exposing drain pipes and utility lines.

The broad street is usually bumper to bumper with motorists backed up from the border between 4:30 and 6:30 a.m. Dozens of buses and cabs use the corner of Juárez and Constitución as their staging area for picking up and dropping off passengers who gather there to cross the border during the workweek.

The six-laned, one-way street, which is about 60 feet wide, is being resurfaced with concrete, similar to the treatment given the newly reopened Calle 123. That street was closed for about two months as the resurfacing was accomplished.

I'm going to miss the good ol' days, when potholes would open up during a rainstorm and create holes large enough for swimming pools. Wait 'till they get to Calle Tercera, that's going to be an absolute nightmare for motorists.
