OK, Streetsblog Chicago readers, this is it. We've got a mere 24 hours until our Wednesday reboot deadline. So far, thanks to generous support from readers like you and sponsors, we've raised $47,685. We need to come up with $2,315 more in order to win the $25K challenge grant from the Chicago Community Trust that will allow us to resume publication for a year.

We have a funding lead or two that is likely to materialize today, so I'm confident SBC will be back online tomorrow one way or another. But if you value the site's unique perspective on local transportation issues and haven't already donated, you can help ensure a successful relaunch. Please make a contribution to the Streetsblog Chicago Resurrection Fund today.

As always, thanks for your support, and don't forget to vote!

- John
