    Water Main Project Is Our Killing Business, Says Portage Grounds Cafe Owner
    PORTAGE PARK - A months-long construction project to replace water mains underneath Irving Park Road has snarled traffic and made it impossible to park near Portage Grounds in Portage Park - grinding the cafe's profits to dust, its owner said.
    https://www.dnainfo.com

  • The same problem existed last year on Central from Irving Pk. almost all the way to Lawrence...I'm sure businesses like Suparossa, Crafty Beaver , Mias, etc. lost big $$..Can you imagine having a wedding at Suparossa with all that dust?

  • so much for the theory traffic calming and reduced parking is supposed to stimulate business by driving pedestrian traffic.

    LINCOLN PARK - Today, DePaul University's campus is filled with tech-savvy students whose slim smart phones and laptops are always at the ready. But in the 1980s, the computers (and many of the hairstyles) were HUGE. At least that's how it seems in an old DePaul promotional video we stumbled across.
