Ald. Osterman sent out a progress report at 8:40pm on Tuesday:
"There is a gas line down on the 900 block of W. Argyle. People's Gas and representatives from the City are on-site and currently working to repair it. It is expected to be repaired around midnight tonight.According to DNAinfo, the repairs are taking longer than expected and will last throughout the night.
There will be warming buses on Argyle between Marine Dr. and Sheridan Rd. If your building or home is without heat, please utilize one of the warming buses. If you need assistance, please call 311.
Once the gas line is repaired, People's Gas representatives will go unit-to-unit to turn the gas back on. Keep in touch with your management company for further details."
Update: Residents tell us that the gas was restored around 4:30-5am, and they now have heat and hot water, after approximately 16 hours without. A wretched night for all, especially the crews who worked to get everything fixed. Glad it's over before the bitterest of the cold weather arrives.
