    Pretty underwhelming responses from the mayoral candidates. Preckwinkle specifically states her priority will be transportation in Rosemont?? Ha.

    That Niles pedestrian fatality occurred in an area with lots of residents (particularly the elderly), lots of commercial development, and no sidewalks on golf road. The police response? A campaign to tell pedestrians to be careful. How about some damn sidewalks.

    It would be nice to see Illinois pick up a bit more for the Hiawatha to add in a station at Waukegan, and extend the Glenview metra platform a bit farther north. No sense moving from a Pace-served station to the other Glenview station, but the blocked roads could be resolved. If they had a few more runs, they might even be able to use shorter trains that don’t block the street, and the NIMBYs would be happy enough again.
