    On a side note, I was reminded earlier of this air quality monitoring project. There’s a good write up here: http://midwestenergynews.com/2017/07/27/in-chicago-monitoring-program-part-of-neighborhoods-clean-energy-push/

    It’s ongoing, but the results may be of interest to folks here, if you zoom in on the map it is extremely granular (I was a “test dummy” for a few weeks myself):

    Re: new access/shuttle road as part of the Tribune Site development

    So, is this basically going to replace the RR tracks that served that printing facility as a branch from the UP lines? If so, is there any awareness or concern that this RR ROW might be needed later for HSR or transit? Haven’t we built enough auto-roads in this city?!?
