    Weekly Update from Your Alderman - October 27, 2017
    Planned Water Main Projects in 48th Ward The Department of Water Management plans to install approximately 2,002 feet of 8-inch water main on Kenmore between Bryn Mawr and Berwyn. As part of this project, the east half of Kenmore will be resurfaced along with the repair of damaged parkway and sidewalk.

  • The Walk sign on the crosswalk at Addison and Kennedy is not working. It is the sign which faces east as you cross over the northbound entry to the Kennedy walking toward the station.

  • Bob Kastigar 15 Years North Park, bike rider, retired

    That sign doesn't make a lot of sense anyway. When working, the walk light is lit when cars have the green light and are turning to enter the expressway!

    The walk light should be lit when cars on Addison have the red light, and a "No Turn on Red" sign should be posted. Eastbound on Addison cars with an arrow would still need to stop for pedestrians.

    Dear Neighbor: Thank you to everyone who contributed to a safe and festive Halloween in the 48th Ward. Though it was a bit chilly, we saw thousands of trick-or-treaters enjoying our community on Tuesday night. Last night in Uptown, a man was killed and two people were injured, including a 12 year-old boy, in a shooting incident that police believe was related to drug sales.
