    The replacement/upgrade of that MD-W bridge is/was part of the plan for Amtrak service to Rockford (via the MD-W). Glad to see this part is moving forward, anyway.

  • What iteration of the Hancock Center Plaza is this? Third, sixth, eighth? Talk about a failed architectural feature. The sunken plaza just grates on me every time I see it.

  • The one advantage of it is that in the colder months, it’s less windy than ground level and traps a lot of sunshine, so it’s very nice to use the outdoor seating.

    Metra Grant: that should read $14 million grant and 134-year-old bridge – my eyes bugged out when I thought that was the correct price tag.

  • Does that sculpture remind anyone else of the ter’angreal at Rhuidean?
