I can’t remember when the canal looked normal. Definitely over a year now. The beauty of the canal is long gone. The roads along the canal are filled with potholes. Dust is everywhere. When will it end? I heard they may complete it by the end of 2010 though they were supposed to have finished last December. Once the construction is completed, it should relieve a lot of the street flooding in the city. The current “new” sewage system is not being used yet according to rumors.
