Good news! Thanks to generous support from readers and advertisers, we are now in the home stretch of our campaign to revive this website. Yesterday, we received a number of online donations to the Streetsblog Chicago Resurrection Fund, a new pledge from a local business, and several hundred dollars in contributions at our super-fun Donor Appreciation Party at Revolution Brewing. We're very grateful to everyone who showed up and/or contributed to the cause yesterday, and we also want to give a big thanks to RevBrew for hosting the event and buying the first round for donors who gave $100 or more. 

After receiving $1,650 in donations and the pledge yesterday, our war chest now contains $45,110, which means we've got less than $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 less than two weeks to come up with that money before out April 8 reboot deadline. If you value Streetsblog Chicago's hard-hitting transportation reporting and haven't already donated to the resurrection fund, please consider doing so today.

Thanks again for your support!

The victim may have been walking in the street because a gate limiting pedestrian access on the south side of Wacker was locked at the time.
