Viaduct on 1500 block of Throop Street

Why hasn't the city done any thing about no lights and the horrible condition of the street? Large chunks of concrete missing from the street as soon as you go under the tracks. I made a report to 311 with zero results. While the intersection of Blue Island Ave and 15th St has been stripped and resurfaced twice.

  • That viaduct is on the City's list. If you go to Ward night, you can ask and see how it's progressing. The Alderman's office works with Streets & San to prioritize the viaduct projects to the extent that the railroads can coordinate with them.

    I understand that particular viaduct was held up by Union Pacific and the work that was going on underneath it while the Blue Island Work was happening. (The City needs to coordinate their work with the railroads, who own and maintain the actual viaduct structure.)

Governor

So the Governor spends over 20 million dollars of his own money to get elected.think about that. what is his return on that money. $$$$$$$$$. and he can`t help the child care programs or the social services programs what do i have to say to that 1 term no more

  • Ms. Creaulait Displaced country girl in the Big City

    AGREED, robin in WRP. . .LITERACY is an issue - written and oral. As is birth control...how about being taught and having enforced age-appropriate behavior? If anyone is over 18, is NOT a citizen, can't speak the language and all the rest. . .send them HOME.

  • Ms. Creaulait, there is a candidate running for president who has said he will build a wall on our southern border to keep all of the criminals who are invading our country in their country of origin. Try to go anywhere south of the U.S. border and walk into a hospital emergency room and ask for free health care, or apply for a job at a company to see how far you get. You'll be denied free health care and deported.
