Unofficial Hyde Park and Kenwood, including East Hyde Park.

Notified About

  • 1428 E. 57th Street Chicago/Cook, IL - Hyde Park
    The northwest corner of the intersection of Blackstone Ave. & 57th Street turns into a small lake, about 4 inches deep, whenever it rains or snow melts; then freezes over and creates a slipping hazard; last year at least one broken ankle occurred. The sewer drain does not accept the water and is more than likely broken. The water covers an area 10 feet across and children have to walk in the street to make it to the other side.
  • 1359 East 52nd Street Chicago, Illinois - Hyde Park
    I believe this is the worst block in Hyde Park at the moment. Too many potholes to count running the entire block from Dorchester Ave to Kenwood Ave on 52nd St. Please fix as soon as possible.
    Thank you.
  • 5120 S Dorchester Chicago, Cook, IL - Hyde Park
    There are multiple potholes on this street and they are impossible to avoid.
  • 5210 S Dorchester Chicago, Cook, IL - Hyde Park
    Multiple potholes in the street. One large one is around a manhole cover, and this will cause tire damage if it is hit.
  • 51st And Blackstone Chicago, Illinois - Kenwood
    This looks like it is a sinkhole developing. Its right in the middle of the street, on Blackstone at 51st. The pavement is caving in, and it looks like it's getting bigger.
  • 57th And Blackstone Chicago, IL - Hyde Park
    Serious water problem flooding intersection, frequently impassable and icy
  • 5617 S. Dorchester Avenue Chicago, Illinois - Hyde Park
    The manhole/storm drain which was installed last summer at the east side of the street by a private contractor for the city water main replacement along Dorchester Avenue has proven to be a drainage problem. The drain is located adjacent to curb cuts for driveways and drains so slowly that the sidewalk becomes impassible at times (there is no parkway along Dorchester, the sidewalk is immediately adjacent to the street) and has gotten to the point that the entire width of the street is flooded, overwhelming the drain on the west side of the street which is directly west of the the drain in question. The pitch to the drains is excellent unlike on Blackstone and 57th Street, the issue here is ease of clogs at the new drain and slow drainage after clearing it (I have cleared both drains frequently to hasten drainage during our recent storms). This was not a problem before the drain was modified.
