|The aftermath of yet another fire on the northside of the Lawrence Ave. viaduct under DSLSD.|
Another fire has swept through the homeless encampment under DuSable Lake Shore Drive in the Lawrence viaduct.
CDOT will need to once again assess the damage and the structural integrity of the bridge above. You might recall our story back in September that shared an email from former Ald. Cappleman and the chief bridge engineer that stated that the life span of these bridges has been dramatically reduced from these fires (see below).
So far, it has been "lather, rinse, repeat" with the city and current Ald. Clay has been very quiet. We fear that the only thing that will cause action is a lawsuit or an unfortunate loss of life.
