  • I asked Google Maps to show me 191st and Harlem, because I was curious about that third-from-the-bottom headline — and on the satellite photo, there’s an awesome corn maze that says Tinley Park in it right at that intersection! Hilarious.

    I’m not sure what the problem is, though — right now if you’re coming west on Flossmoor, you zig sideways slightly onto Oak Park Avenue and then come north on Harlem before turning left on 191st. Is this difficult? I haven’t driven through the intersections, so I don’t know how annoying they are.

    None of those “streets” showing on Google currently go through. They’re part of the parking lot of the “whatever it’s called today” amphitheater and are normally closed. Flossmoor Road and Ridgeland Avenue are very popular bike routes,as they are two of the very few streets around here that have full shoulders. Flossmoor Road has very little traffic between Ridgeland and Cicero and this has the potential to increase it dramatically.
