  • Chicagoan

    An off-topic observation, but after having used the Harold Washington / State/Van Buren station, it could use a bit of renovation work. I love the Postmodern design (Evocative of the library), but the concrete floors are in very rough shape and the steel steps are rusty. Granted, so could Washington/Wells, LaSalle/Van Buren, Adams/Wabash, and State/Lake.

    Airports are big money…I am sure you can justify spending $8 billion out already and another $8 billion in 2 1/2 bundles of $4 billion each ($16 billion) for the people that fly in and out of Chicago. How many individual Chicagoans fly through O’Hare in a year? Out of towners? What is the per capita expense? This is two times IDOT’s $8 billion 6-year capital program for roadways across the entire state. What is the air water and noise pollution levels that the Fed’s are supposed to keep track of, with out local oversight? Alderman call for an “Oversight Commission!” Did you hear them?
