I live on the 5700 block of West Huron. On Friday I went to leave out of my garage and both ends of the alley were blocked by workers with no access our of either end. The workers told us they gave everyone notice and we will not have access to our alley or our garages for 3 weeks. I had to leave to go to work and was forced to go through a vacant lot when I went over the curb it broke my bumper.

I have spoke to several neighbors and none of them received notices, there is no notices on any light poles or posted notices anywhere. Did anyone else receive a notice about this work? It is unacceptable to block all access to our garages for 3 weeks.

    Going through 311 and the Alderman can slow things down.
