Chicago Fire Filming in Printers Row

What's Going on at SW Corner of Clark and Archer?

This article has 2 other Chicago locations (Show)

Any idea what's going on at south Plymouth and Polk. Noticed a lot of activity over the weekend and this morning bar Louie was open before 6am and looked like people were applying make up. I'm assuming they're filming something.

    Yes. They closed Plymouth at Polk last Friday and closed Polk from State to Dearborn completely wrecking traffic earlier this week. All the production trucks were parked on State in front of Jones College Prep, forcing Busses, people dropping off their kids and normal rush hour traffic into one lane. I usually check the Twitter site: @filming_chicago to see what is filming in the area. I found out Bruce Willis is coming to town soon to remake Charles Bronson's "Death Wish" closing more South Loop streets.

    Unbelievable. Highest paid teachers in the country with the lowest performing schools and they want more. Our taxes have risen far enough, time for the teachers to start paying into their own retirement and stop fleecing the taxpayers.

  • CPS needs to close about 200 more schools that are grossly under-utilized and costing tax payers a fortune to keep open with the dramatically declining enrollment at CPS. The CTU is responsible for most of the mess at CPS because it colluded with politicians to underfund its pension.

Daniel Burnham's Chinatown-To-Downtown Roadway Is Finally Being Built

The new $62 million roadway would realign Wentworth Avenue and Cermak Road, in turn easing congestion for Chinatown and South Loop residents heading north to work.

Though modest, the initial phase around Wentworth and 18th Street is an important first step toward realizing the city's longtime plan to better connect the area just south of Downtown to the city's core.

The project will improve pedestrian access along a stretch of Wentworth near 19th Street, an oft-cramped two-way road devoid of sidewalks. The connector — with new sidewalks and landscaping — are expected to ease pedestrian access to the sleek field house at Ping Tom Park.

The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) and Solis will announce the beginning of the connector's first phase at 10 a.m. Friday at Ping Tom Memorial Park, 1700 S. Wentworth Ave., Solis' office said.

    Daniel Burnham's Chinatown-To-Downtown Roadway Is Finally Being Built
    CHINATOWN - Daniel Burnham proposed it. Engineers and laborers moved the Chicago River to make room for it. But more than a century passed before construction got started on a planned road connecting Chinatown and Downtown. That changed this week with construction starting on the long-promised Wells-Wentworth Connector, according to the office of Ald.
