    The Stone Bridge will be a huge connection that is sorely needed The Lincoln crossing at the Bridge is incredibly dangerous. The sidewalk is very narrow and has streetlights on the bridge. The unofficial route — Kedzie — is pretty rough as the traffic moves quite quickly.

    Given the bridge connects a lot of neighborhoods with the retail, I think it could pay for itself over time.

    (And I remember Berny sitting across from us saying it was a safety issue and it wouldn’t be built. It seems like some of the blockage was due to the housing project he built mid-block.)
