Mind The Gap, And Your Heads
For those Uptowners who use the Wilson El station, you've noticed by now that the ceiling has collapsed in the main entrance on Broadway. The CTA has constructed barriers around the 2 sections of ceiling that have collapsed. We had previously noticed the ceiling in this station to be in very bad shape, and it turns out these were the sections that collapsed. How much more will it take? A little preventative maintenance on the CTA's part would have saved El passengers from this headache. We haven't received any reports of passengers being hurt in the collapse, but how much more will it take before the CTA wakes up and realizes its time to rehab the Wilson El? Oh yes, that's right, "a lot" of progress has been made. The design phase is at 30%.
