Yes, real. No, not photoshop or a prank.

To which, a friend of mine who is an engineer with NYSDOT was absolutely disgusted that this happened. Not only did he say that in the event of a lack of coordination between them and a utility they would find a way to take down the pole anyway, but he also said that it was gross negligence and misconduct for the construction crew to actually put down a highway like that.

If you look, it's not just the one pole in the middle of the highway - there's another right on the white line demarcation between the paved shoulder and a travel lane. As if one wasn't bad enough.

Sigh. Only in Quebec.
