  • Montrose And Clarendon Chicago IL - Chicago Ward 46
    VOTE TODAY! Historically significant Cuneo Hospital complex at Montrose & Clarendon Avenues includes a wonderful pair of mid-century buildings designed by esteemed architect Edo J. Belli that are perfectly suited for creative reuse. Structures at the site have been determined eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places, yet no adaptive reuse studies have been completed. The community that basks in the glow of Clarendon Park's sunshine is worried about affordability, about shadows from the proposed highrises, about traffic from the proposed retail and apartments. Yet no economic, shadow, or traffic studies have been made public for community consideration, and bird safety concerns persist. Please VOTE TODAY to save these community assets and address these concerns. Uptown can help the City of Chicago find a better solution!

    For drivers as well as pedestrians and cyclists, traffic around the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) campus can get congested and confusing at times at busy locales such as the intersection of Taylor and Wood Streets and on Harrison Street near University Hall and student dormitories. So confusing, in fact, that a 2002 study by the Chicago Department of Transportation concluded the Taylor and Wood intersection needed a stoplight.

    Previous 2nd Ward Alderman Madeline Haithcock had barred the idea as too costly, so since then UIC Police have placed vertical yellow signs in the streets at both locales that urge drivers to watch for pedestrians. The signs say, “State law, yield within crosswalk,” and have a drawing of a pedestrian. Bill Burton, UIC News Bureau director, said, “The signs are intended to remain in place at all times but sometimes are removed because they were struck by a car or were stolen.” He added UIC has not compiled statistics to determine whether the signs have increased or decreased collisions at these intersections.

    “Anecdotal reports of close calls and near misses and concern for pedestrian safety,” prompted UIC to install the signs Burton said. “UIC Police are writing tickets where violations occur, like for not coming to a complete stop or making an improper turn. They are enforcing the signs. The signs are a good idea.”

    Chicago Police Commander Dennis Keane of the 12th District agreed the current signs “seem to do the job. From what I see people seem to honor the signs. When they see people, they stop.”

  • 1016 N Paulina Chicago, IL 60622, USA - Chicago Ward 1
    It is very dangerous to cross at Division at Paulina. Despite a crosswalk, cars rarely ever stop for pedestrians. A traffic light would be idea, but a stop sign would work too. There used to be signes indicating it's the law to stop for pedestrians. Anything to remind motorists they should stop would be helfpul, especially during the school year when children are crossing.
  • 3685-3721 North Lake Shore Drive Chicago, Illinois - Chicago Ward 46
    Is anyone else afraid to stand at this bus stop? There was a very serious accident here in August and the city hasn't done anything about it for over a month! The guard rail needs to be rebuilt and replaced with something taller and more sturdy against oncoming traffic.
