45TH SOUTH DOESN'T CARE ABOUT YOU (PART 2)

This past Sunday, commutergirl and I went to Church, as we are wont to do on Sundays. We go to church early because I'm the organist. It's not as easy as it sounds, what with a three-month-old Baby and all.

It was a good thing we left early this time, because as we followed our regular route to Church

Again, this map is somewhat inaccurate.
we were confronted with a completely impenetrable barrier: 45th South was completely torn up in the middle.  Only a single lane was open in each direction, and left turns were roundly prohibited.  Our drive to Church suddenly turned into this:




The worst part was that driving was still the fastest way, since the street was totally impassable on foot as well.  I didn't even get to claim any moral superiority.

I can guess what the rationale for ripping up the road on a Sunday morning is--nobody's out Sunday at 8:30 A.M., right?  Except that the person who decided this was a good time to work on the road probably underestimated Mormons' inexorable drive to make it to Church on a Sunday morning.  Especially if they have to get there early to play the organ.
