Accident Waiting To Happen
We are continually amazed at how much neglect anything CTA related receives once the tracks enter the 46th Ward. Case in point, this bridge, mainly used by purple line trains, at Leland and Broadway. All we have to say is that we hope we are not anywhere near this crumbling eyesore when it decides to drop off a chunk of concrete on an unsuspecting bystander or car below, or worse yet, collapse. And while we are on it, we have called 311 several times to report the fact that there is STILL no lighting under the tracks by Ace-Hardware at night. We encourage our readers to flood 311 and the Alderman's office with requests for the lighting to be fixed under these tracks. We are giving criminals an easy way to conduct business anywhere near this spot.
