Torching the crapper

Someone finally lit a fire under the Annadale overpass construction that has been held up for months.

Unfortunately, it wasn't the paperwork that was finally pushed through - it was a wad of newspapers set ablaze inside of a worksite Port-A-John on Posen Street.

"I've never seen anything like this," said Jeff Morykan, the project manager for Beaver Concrete Construction. "It's just mischief."

It would appear that the arsonists struck either late last Sunday night or in the wee hours of Monday morning, leaving a nasty surprise for Morykan when he began his work week.

reminds me of when the city tore a huge hole down 31st ave from woodside to crescent st. during the 80s and left this huge trench open for months before they put in whatever water pipe eventually was installed... Contractors getting paid to sit around every day and do nothing, for weeks on end.
Residents finally got so sick of the trash, rats, and lack of parking that come july 4 night that year, the construction co's trailer was set on fire.

These guys should work faster...

The only running they are doing in Astoria is running it into the ground.
