Street Construction Bosworth and Schreiber

Last October the city installed handicapped sidewalks at Bosworth and Schreiber. Part of that process requires pavement removal which has never been restored.Over past 11 months I have seen joggers trip along with a blind person trip whom the sidewalks were installed for. When calling 311 the operator tells me that it must be part of an ongoing project. 11 months give me a break.

  • Sandy in EdgeGlen EdgeGlen since 1987

    Same thing down in Marquette Park (where my husband is an attending physician at Holy Cross). It’s been months since the pavement removal, not just of sidewalk but street surface, necessitating making right turns from the left lane. In both cases, accidents waiting to happen, and potential personal injury claims that would cost the city exponentially more than it would to complete the work.
