A gaping, 20-foot sinkhole on Canal Street, which cost the city millions of dollars, provided instant fodder for amateur comedians and which was honored at an impromptu May 5 celebration, has been repaired at least two months ahead of schedule, city officials said Tuesday.It's good to see the mayor is going to make it out for the, um, ribbon cutting or whatever they have planned. But you'd think Canal Street could at least get a welcome on par with what they gave Costco or CVS. You can find those in any city. Our world famous sinkhole deserves better.
Mayor Mitch Landrieu will reopen the section of Canal Street near Harrah’s Casino on Tuesday. The street has been blocked off since the ground opened in late April.
