Open street for Open House?

City of Montreal crews have been labouring at a frenzied pace over the past few weeks as they race to finish construction on McTavish Street in time for McGill's three-day 175th Anniversary Open House, which starts next Friday, September 20. When the work is completed, McTavish will have a new road surface, broader sidewalks, less traffic and more trees.
