 Thanks to generous support from readers and advertisers, we are now in the home stretch of our campaign to revive this website. Our war chest now contains $45,580, which means we’ve got less than $4.5K to raise in order to win the $25K challenge grant from the Chicago Community Trust that will allow us to resume publication. However, we now have only nine days to come up with that money before out April 8 reboot deadline, so it’s crunch time. If you value Streetsblog Chicago’s hard-hitting transportation reporting and haven’t already donated to the resurrection fund, please do so today.

Thanks again for your support!

  • Anyone happen to know what the bleep happened on the lower deck of Lake Shore Drive this morning?

    Typo in the 5th bullet, should be Second Chance.

  • Was there a crash on the Lakefront Trail?

    It will be interesting to see how satisfaction among L riders compares after an entire year of track sharing on the red line. Now, traffic jams on the L are a regular occurrence on my morning commute. We get delayed due to trains ahead of us. The train cars fill to capacity, and the conductor keeps saying there is a train right behind us — of course there is. There is always a train right ahead and right behind these days… so you get delayed, but the train can’t run express to make up for it.

    It adds a few minutes to my normal commute, but I swear “traffic” added 15 minutes when I went all the way downtown recently. However, some mornings it’s completely smooth — so maybe it’s all luck.
