Near-constant aircraft noise in West Loop

It's 1 am and we just had yet another aircraft of some sort flying overhead for at least a half an hour.

This after several helicopters circled this afternoon around rush hour for over an hour.

I know we're near the Loop and I had no delusions that this would be whisper quiet, but the aircraft noise seems like it's getting excessive - it's every day, starting as early as 5 am on some days.

Is anyone else having issues? Any recommendations on who in the city should be contacted?

  • chi techie...i think they voted it down because they thought it was too dangerous with all the tall buildings in the area and the strong winds by the lake.

  • Thanks, I didn't know how that turned out. A friend of mine went to the hearings in support of the landing pad, but I never learned whether it was approved. Most of the opposition was from nearby residents who didn't want the noise.

Community News Letter

In reading some of the posts, someone alluded to a Community News Letter for the
28th Ward. I have never seen one and I've been in the area for more than 55 years, diligently paying my taxes and keeping snow, ice and rubbish from accumulating in front of our house and our neighbors' houses; trying to do my part.

List of the worst potholes

Trying to compile a list of some bad potholes across the city. I'm aware of of the city's pothole tracker app, but with so many across the city, I figured you all might know better some particularly bad potholes left after the winter that are on your everyday commute.

If so, please specify which block or closest intersection and a brief description.

Also, is there any Chicago street that is considered especially pothole-ridden to the point that you try to avoid it?

Thanks,

Tony

  • Great idea Tony. I will be back to you with my top spots and will visit this post for more warnings. I know that there are a few very bad blocks (North South Streets) in the Fulton Market area. I will get specifics.

    Hope this helps shine the light on these areas for the City.
