How Much Longer Will It Stand?

We were wondering how much longer the El tracks over Broadway at Leland will stand. Re bar is clearly visible and concrete has been falling onto the street below (click picture for larger image). The small light pointing down on the support beam in the foreground does not seem to be serving much purpose either (see above). It appears that one of the support beams closer to Leland has been repaired in the last several years but the rest of this bridge is long overdue for repairs. Is this what we want greeting visitors to the "Uptown Square Historical District?" CTA, are you listening?
