Construction underway for Western-Belmont overpass demolition

CHICAGO — Construction has begun for the demolition of the deteriorating overpass at Western and Belmont.

    Construction underway for Western-Belmont overpass demolition
    CHICAGO - Construction has begun for the demolition of the deteriorating overpass at Western and Belmont. The actual demolition is slated to start on March 1. In the meantime, if that's an area you drive though, prepare for construction headaches and adding time to your commute as Western Avenue will be reduced to a single lane each way between George and Roscoe streets.

    I am very tired of most reporters who are writing about this issue, and city officials who are quoted on the Belmont overpass. The press is giving them a pass. The press has effectively become a cheerleader for taking down the overpass. The overpass is constantly referred to as "The deteriorating or rapidly deteriorating overpass" . The only reason it is deteriorating is that it ceased to be maintained once the closed door decision was made to get rid of it. Rusting exposed metal could have been sealed and covered a long time ago. The other issues with it were directly related to a lack of maintenance. No one has been seen out there painting, sealing, repairing concrete etc. for years. Not maintaining it has been a cover for the decision to remove it. Once the cost is actually revealed, replacement of the overpass would probably cost the same as the grade level project, but maintaining what is in place would have saved the cost of the entire project for many years..

    Not looking forward to another year of traffic headaches on Western!
    Maybe we'll be happy its gone in the end. Funny thing is they did a lot of work on just a few years ago. Didn't they know then that it would eventually be demolished? Classic case of government waste.

    Are they going to hire more detectives now that's yell all be stuck in traffic. Or should we expect even less of CPD than their current horrible record?
