concern about safety

There is an urgent need for adequate lighting on the North side of the 606 at Bloomingdale and Western. The pavement is very uneven and dangerous to pedestrians. Also any traffic coming from the East trying to merge onto Western cannot see what's coming from northbound traffic on Western. There should be a way for cars to see what's coming on Western, in order to merge without blocking the crosswalk or entering Western since that's very dangerous to the moving cars on Western as well.

    . I still think a more intense street light would be necessary for the pedestrians though as repaving would probably not last due to Chicago climate and the fact that it's somewhat under a viaduct (the 606) which always has bad pavement anyway. That would be better than a stop...

    . I still think a more intense street light would be necessary for the pedestrians though as repaving would probably not last due to Chicago climate and the fact that it's somewhat under a viaduct (the 606) which always has bad pavement anyway. That would be better than a stop sign, if it would stay visible. Right now you can see a little portion of coming traffic thru the posts, but not everything....and you're not totally sure of what's coming and how fast.
    Where should it be placed exactly? T He more detail you tell the city, the better.

  • Artist girl Artist and Muscian

    I didn't say a stop sign, I said a convex traffic mirror that would show approaching traffic reflected in it. It would solve the problem. You would place it to the right, on the north side of Bloomingdale, where it meets Western, and turn it so that it shows approaching traffic.

    So Hoping this girl might be Shayna missing from Skokie. Her family saw a camera video from where she was lost while with a sitter that showed she was picked up, so it's possible she ended up in Chicago. I did contact Shayna's mom and she is going to contact you as she looks like her girl. She is not on facebook and I believe her grandson who lives in Texas is trying to help her set up a facebook account to comment on on the hospital's post. Her phone number: (224) 766-6566 https://www.facebook.com/LostFoundPetsChicagoIL/photos/a.1940701626149048.1073741828.1753317621554117/2028868947332315/?type=3&theater

  • Ev

    Thank you so much for posting as this lead to Shayna, missing from Skokie and she is back home with her mom tonight Sunday 11/19/2017. Your post helped me remember a lost post I saw from pawboost and the rest is history. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, you gave Shayna and her family a Thanksgiving miracle!

  • Oh this is so great! How great you found the owner! I bet the family is so relieved. Thanks for taking her in, and to Ev for the followup. Thanks for letting us know how it turned out.

  • Rowe Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    My child attended this school 6 yrs and our experience was amazing, this is one school where you feel like a part of whole. Open door polices, with teachers or the principal at all times, any issues you may have are address right in the momont & not put off, I loved that about the school, and the strong academic foundation my child received at Rowe I feel has set her up for success.
