    Glad Rob Johnson got his windshield perspective in at the end of the CBS 2 piece.

  • Anne A

    Yeah, that was *special.*

  • Anne A

    Block parties – yeah, sometimes I feel like the 19th ward has too many on some days – at least too many in close proximity to each other on the same dates. Makes it tough to get around, even by bike.

  • Chicagoan

    I’m convinced that CSR Sifang receiving the contract over Bombardier is part of some long game that involves Mayor Emanuel & a shadowy Chinese investment consortium, ultimately having to do with Chinese funding for the O’Hare express train.

    TLDR: Chinese money

  • Elias Zamaria

    I am very curious about why portions of the brown line are at grade level, but the link is pointing to the wrong article. Can anyone fix it?

  • johnaustingreenfield

    Fixed, thanks.

  • My husband regularly rides Elston, and he’s volcanically pissed that much of the bike lane on the new Elston curve is still barricaded off or has catastrophically missing pavement.
